Eight months ago I took a 2-pound pup from a young lady walking around trying to give her away…...as it turned out the little dog had the usual symptoms of an animal not properly cared-for. Worms, dehydration, improper nutrition, etc. We made two visits to the vet and one emergency clinic visit in the first three days we had her. I am pleased to report that she survived and is doing well.
Mika is a tri-color mix, probably with a Siberian as she has ice-blue eyes. She has a long slightly curved tail. To me she looks "Basenji", a term I had never heard before a week ago.
She may be a mix, but she certainly acts like a Basenji, based on what I've read so far. She does bark. She has rocket sprint speed, can catch a frisbee like a border collie, likes to climb high, will roll over for a belly-rub, chews everything in sight. Is great on a leash. Very Very Perceptive, sight and sound.
It is safe to say that I am new to this breed, but expect to learn a lot from this forum and from our newest family member.
Do I have a Basenji??
