Your baby looks exactly like my "Harry" who I had to put down this past Monday. He had all characteristics of a Basenji, tho I am pretty sure he was a rat terrier/basenji mix. (I wrote about him a few years back on this link:
We had him from about 8 weeks old until may 15th at 7:30 am.
What a crazy guy. Handsome as all get out. (I always told him that if there was such a magazine as "Handsome Dog magazine", he would be on every cover. I think the reason I am so heartbroken is that he was so hard to bond with and my wife and I took care of him almost like one takes care of an autistic child.
Well, I know this is 4 years late...but I am sorry for your loss and hope you found another like your beloved baby.
This is a pic of Harry after he lost over 20 lbs because of kidney disease.

I have a friend, Sandy, who has a chow mix dog, recently he has started getting territorial with her, her husband (bit him last night) and other pets over certain places in the house. She thinks he may be territorial over her with the others as well. He has started to become rather grouchy in the last 6 months but normally is social, very shy and friendly otherwise especially with her 10 year old grandson. When she tries to groom him he snaps at her (and bit her) a few weeks ago her groomer had a real struggle with him he was being very aggressive towards the groomer. Buster is 3 years old.
I suggested getting an Animal Behaviorist but we don't know where to find one, does anyone have any suggestions?

If this is a recent change, has the dog been seen by a vet? When a dog is in pain they will often have a behavorial change and be more grouchy and not like being touched.
