I used Wisdom Panel for my assumed Basenji mix. It showed no basenji at all. My boy is 32 lbs and short hair. His DNA says he is 25% American Eskimo 12.5% Boston Terrier 12.5% Chow Chow 12.5% German Shepherd 12.5% Miniature Schnauzer 25% Breed Group-Sporting, Herding, Hound, Terrier. Having owned basenjis all my life I would say my boy has basenji in him by his personality and behavior regardless of what his dna says!!
Growing the perfect dog nose
I love how puppies of any breed have really flat faces compaired to as they grow. I hadn't realized how long Zaire's nose had grown untill I was looking at a more recent picture. Here are three pictures for Yall.
The first one is the day I brought her home.
Here is one from about a month after she came home.
And finaly the GREAT nose shot from last week.

Thank you …oh and it's a good thing too. I keep telling her she is lucky she is so good lookign or I would put her in a soup. Of course with CHarlie I alwayse threaten to BBQ him....I really hope my neighbors get my sense of humor.

We tell Nicky she would make great stew, but would require long slow cooking to get her tender. We used to threaten one of our early basenjis with making a pair of gloves out of her…we all have a pretty silly sense of humor, don't we?
Anne in Tampa, who makes stew FOR Nicky, not out of her, haha
we all have a pretty silly sense of humor, don't we?
Of course…..that's why we can all put up with being owned by these CRAZY dogs.
wonderful series of photos…
Glad you thought of it...and share it!

I used to tell Booger I was going to toss him off our third story porch into the woods… until two weeks ago we came home & couldn't find him. We leave the back porch door open thinking he couldn't come to harm. We started calling him & he came running to the front door. We inspected the bushes underneath our porch, which were in disarray & leads us to believe he either fell or jumped off the porch. We have no idea how long he was out on his own, with no collar!!!! in a huge apartment complex with coyotes in the woods behind us! And he didn't have a scratch on him!!!!!!!!!! Its not such a funny threat anymore.
Its not such a funny threat anymore.
Oh so he did it on purpose to teach you a lesson.
Isn't that the way with these little devils…...you have to be carefull what you say....they hear everything.
