Hello Everyone

Hi everyone. This is my first post and I want to introduce myself and my basenji. Diesel is an 11 month old male who I've had since he was 16 weeks old. I'm in the process of getting a divorce and left my female Carlee with my husband. I am a homecare hospice nurse and visit patients in their homes every day. Diesel is a typical basenji puppy-mischievious and fun loving but he sure can get into trouble!!! We are looking forward to reading all the information here in the community. Have a great day.

Welcome. I just wanted you to know (as you've already discovered) Basenji=trouble.

Quite true. We call our pup Trouble On Four Feet.
Welcome computerguru! I also have a boy pup around the same age. Still waiting for him to start using his head…Were those two your first B's or have you been in the breed for awhile?

Welcome to the pack - you'll find lots of great information here. And feel free to share you stories of beastie antics.

Welcome to the forum! Please post some pics of your boy 🙂

Welcome!

Yes Pics!!!!!!

No I have had basenjis for approximately 22 years. He is different though than any other I have had. He still bites even when I have taught him "no bite" and he is beginning to not be friendly to anyone but me. I have never experienced this with any of my others-even the 2 that were rescues. Amy thoughts? thanks

I am sure some of the others on this list can give you ideas.
Did you discuss this behavior with his breeder?
Maybe they can help???

Do you think he may be reacting to the big change in his family - the loss of both your ex and his basenj companion?
