My name is Chase. Just picked up an 8-month old brindle male this evening. He slept the entire car ride home (1 1/2 hours). Although now that we're home, he's taking some time to calm down, so I let him hang out on the couch and watch some Law & Order while he gets used to the place. He was a bit nervous at first once I brought him inside and wanted to hide in a corner, but now I think he's starting to relax.
Few pictures of him in his current favorite spot.
We had a bit of a scare when he went outside once I parked the car. He got spooked by someone and shifted quickly, causing his collar to come loose (the breeder unfortunately did not notice the looseness of the collar when we left). My quick reactions (prior experience with quick moving dogs) allowed me to catch him right away. But now I fixed the collar where it will not come loose. He didn't try to bolt that quickly anyways. He's extremely calm for being a Basenji. He hasn't made a single noise either.
That's all for now. Just letting Kananga peacefully adapt to his new home.
