Basenji in A Advertisement

Lovely basenji, but I always worry when a dog becomes popular in an ad.
I remember what happened to the dalmations after the Disney movie.
BUT thanks for sharing this.
Who is the basenji from?? its it yours???

Interesting how that pup is panting…. makes me wonder about the temperature of the pavement.... people forget how hot it gets and really can and does burn their pads...

No not mine, I saw the ad in the magazine "Modern Dog" and then looked up the company. Never heard of the company before so I looked it up, it was the only pic of a basenji they had on their website

Good point, another aspect though is it could have just come from playing at a park or something, I say this more because even though its an ad, the leash is not really tight

Your most likely right… but with ads, we know that there could have been 100 takes to get it right.... so I don't think that this pup just came from the park.... Julie and Kathy Jones in So. Cal has had their B's in a couple of different TV shows... and they say it is really a long, long process with lots of retakes... of course this was just a picture shoot... but still I wonder... and it is something to remember when we are all out walking our kids... especially in the hot sun....
