We have an almost 3 yr old, neutered male Basenji….Jack. After calming down considerably in the last year or so he's a really good boy. He will generally get along really well with other dogs after a "getting to know you" phase. I can't remember introducing him to any puppies - it's all been adult dogs (mostly neutered males that I can think of).
We have always thought of getting another dog (our 17 yr old blue heeler died about a year ago), and now have a chance to get a boxer puppy. We could have our choice of male or female. They are right at 6 weeks old.
Anyone have any experience with this particular breed mix? Recommendations or opinion about male vs. female? I don't think we can handle another dog that will "escape" when given the chance and not come directly back when called, so we need a breed that we can train to come and stay and won't be negatively influenced by Jack in this area. (I will add that with our set up with our house and yard (we have a fenced 1/2 acre) this RARELY happens, but when it does........well, ya'll know if you have Basenjis!)
Thanks in advance,
