Hi!

Hello my name is Vanessa… I live in Washington state.I stumbled upon this forum from looking online about info. on Basenji Mixes...I have a 5yr old Basenji mix. We got her from the local pound! They were sure she was part Basenji but didnt know what else she was mixed with. So shes just out adorable Basenji mutt 🙂 I decided to join because once we actually got our dog, I became very fascinated with this breed. My dog is very different from all the other dogs Ive had 🙂 She definitely has quite the personality!

I hope to share stories and find out more about her breed, from first hand experiences. Because I have certainly researched online but nothing compares to first hand knowledge! 😃

Welcome, I live in Wa. Silverdale. Where are you located?
There is a very active basenji club in Seattle and they have some wonderful lure couring set up for b's to run. I would be happy to share that info with you.

oh wow I had no idea that Seattle had one! 🙂 Thatd be fun for her…Only thing is were working on her not being so aggressive with other dogs. Shes fine with them until they start barking at her. BUT then again, basenjis wont bark at her lol 🙂 She CAN bark, but she hardly ever does, true to the basenji breed she yodels more and "talks" more than anything

What a beautiful girl!
She looks a lot like my Katie.
I posted about Katie here just a few days ago.

Welcome to the forum!! Your pup looks lovely 🙂

Pretty girl, where did you get her?

She is very pretty! My basenjis get along with most other dogs, but really get annoyed if another dog barks at them…so maybe that is a basenji thing. She may be fine with quiet, respectful dogs. 😉

Yeah thats how she is….as long as the dog stays cool...then shes fine too! Shes not necessary aggressive, just VERY protective 🙂

I got her from the ASPCA…My husband looked around online to see what breed he might be interested in and basenji came up and he found her on a local search for pets. We were a bit skeptical, as were the people at the ASPCA, about her being around our young son. But we took a chance and just watched her very closely when he was around. And she is so great with kids, she loves them sooooo much, and not even just ours but when she hears kids' voices she perks up and immediately wags her tail! She really is the best dog ive ever had, though she can be a trouble maker lol

Welcome and your dog is very pretty and looks so happy. Full or half who cares they steal your heart. Have fun.
