I work with a gal that was in the Peace Corps in 1996. She purchased a "village dog" for $4 in the Central African Republic, along the Ubangui River.
She named her Sukani. She was red & white and resembled a basenji a tiny bit for her coloring. She barked, wasn't prey driven, and had long fur once she moved to Washington!
She is putting her to sleep today. I have pictures of Sukani in an email but can't seem to copy them right to post them here. She turned 14 in January. I know she probably outlived her littermates by 10 years.
I am thinking of her today…....
