Your baby looks exactly like my "Harry" who I had to put down this past Monday. He had all characteristics of a Basenji, tho I am pretty sure he was a rat terrier/basenji mix. (I wrote about him a few years back on this link:
We had him from about 8 weeks old until may 15th at 7:30 am.
What a crazy guy. Handsome as all get out. (I always told him that if there was such a magazine as "Handsome Dog magazine", he would be on every cover. I think the reason I am so heartbroken is that he was so hard to bond with and my wife and I took care of him almost like one takes care of an autistic child.
Well, I know this is 4 years late...but I am sorry for your loss and hope you found another like your beloved baby.
This is a pic of Harry after he lost over 20 lbs because of kidney disease.
We just recently found out that the mother of my male pug puppy Jovi died suddenly. she had a seizure, and within an hour she was dead, the vet could do nothing
Its so sad. Only happened a week after she was made up to a Champion so there was obviously no sign at all. And my Jovi is the only pup she left behind (the breeder was hoping to have another litter as she was so pleased with him!) so its just awful. Breeder is understandably heartbroken as her dogs are like her family, as im sure most of ours!
They're waiting for the results of a post mortem… From a selfish point of view im interested to find out what it is incase its something my Jovi could have!
Anyway, these pictures were taken only a few weeks ago... Wasn't she beautiful?

I'm sorry to hear that. We had a Maltese Poodle that had seizures when I was 12 that had to be euthanized. He got hit by a car then had seizures after that. Also one of my Basenjis had them occasionally for a few years then they stopped. The vet said that because she would get so wired up and excited that her brain's electrodes would misfire. She calmed down over time.

I am so sorry for that poor pug. She was a beauty. I hope they find the cause so you won't need to worry anymore.

I'm sorry to hear this. I hope it's nothing congenital that could be passed on.
Jess, I am so sorry to hear that! Hopefully it's nothing that will affect Jovi, fingers crossed.
