Our local shelter called us today thinking they had a Basenji Mix. So we hopped in the car and went to check out the dog. Attached our pictures of the dog in question.
He has been in the shelter since 10/27/09 and is mighty skinny. He appeared scared to death and nervous until we took him outside. Aside from this he also had fleas and Miranda saw worms in his stool. Once outside he was very friendly and even barked once and wagged his tail continuously.
Miranda and I did not agree with the shelter that this was a basenji mix. We are of the opinion that since not that many volunteers at the local shelter in our area have ever seen a Basenji, they conclude that any medium to small size dog with big ears and the slightest curl to their tail must be part basenji.
We took a couple of quick snap shots to find out what you think.
Basenji Mix or not?
