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.

Late in the workday today, when my work was done and I had some time to kill I put 'Basenji' into the search box. 700,000+ entries. OK, so I just start looking at them, page after page. Mostly what you'd expect, definitions, traits, breeders, ads, etc. A couple of things caught my eye. A book called 'The Basenji Revelation' by Simon Cleveland, and a computer program called 'Basenji'. Has anyone heard of either of these and/or have any comments on them?
BTW: I continued the perusal when I got home but still only got through about 650 of them. Interesting stuff though on some of the links. Just goes to show, sometimes the first page on any search engine does not always tell the the tale. example: I was 5 pages in B4 this forum came up.:) And then only as a link from another place as to "traits".
