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.

Poor sweet Pharaoh just can't catch a break (picture attached). Despite
it all, he is just as sweet as can be! First, as a puppy he ends up
with a family that doesn't bother to take him to the vet for the most
basica vaccines or any other veterinary needs.:mad: Then, at the young age of just 8 months, they decide they don't want him anymore and dump him at
a local shelter. Cherokee County Humane Society took sweet Pharaoh
into our program on Monday with the hope that finally, he can get his
life on track. He got neutered and up to date on all vetting. He was
then diagnosed with luxating patellas!! The hope is that this problem
can be managed with supplements and not surgery but we haven't even had
a chance to find out if that will work b/c by Thursday, sweet Pharaoh
was diagnosed with Parvo. Parvo is costly to treat but this boy has so
much heart we just couldn't decline treatment, we just knew we had to
give Pharaoh a chance!! Can you help Pharaoh? Had his first family
only taken the time to take him to the vet as a puppy, he wouldn't be
fighting for his life right now........
Donations to his costly Parvo treatment are needed and appreciated. Any
Donations to his treatment can be called in directly to the vet
(Allatoona Animal Hospital, 678-445-1111, CCHS Acct #1241), made via
Paypal or by check. Please please let me know if you can contribute to
his care at firstname.lastname@example.org
