So many times people post pictures and ask what folks on the forum think about their dogs. Often, the most convincing in appearance turn out disappointingly to not have any Basenji blood. When you think about it, there are not likely all that many crossbreds out there. Most people with an intact Basenji bitch are not looking to cover her with anything but a purebred male, and in North America generally females are spayed because most breeders require it for pet puppies. Bitches that are showing are even less likely to be bred to something outside the breed.
Happy swimming Basenji! *picturespam.

I have heard that b's NEVER swims. And if they do they never do that again.
Well, i am here to prove you wrong!
Cosmo have been interested in the water since he was a little baby, but have been really afraid.
Today, he just went into the water and played! He really loved it. And of course he was free and i didnt force him
first a little pic of my beautiful little baby!
soon 2 be 6 months
he was swimming and playing in the water for over halv an hour!:D
He looks like he really enjoyed himself! Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful photos! I love Cosmo, he reminds me so much of my Topper. I think that must be what he looked like as a "pup"…he would have plunged into water too, just to have fun.
Thank you for sharing photos of Cosmo, I always love to see him.

Really cool pics!!!
And such a handsome boy… I cant' wait for my own black/white at one far day :rolleyes:
Thabo loves water, too.
But he just goes in until it reaches his shoulders.
Both of mine can swim - Zuri just hates it and the one and only time it happened to her, it was an accident :eek:
It never does to generalise about Basenjis! Some enjoy the water and some don't!! I had one that if she was any where near water she would plunge in. You couldn't keep her out of the water!
What a beautiful boy. Thanks for the great pics.
My girl enjoys water but only when it is her choice to do so. She may go for months and not want near any water except that which she wants to drink. She sometimes will even throw a fuss about having to go out in the rain. But then all of a sudden, she starts to act like she's part duck. Just when I think I've figured her out, there she goes to prove me wrong again.

that's so cool ..hope isis will join in with the labs someday right now shes a land lover
Great pictures - my B sits between my legs on the paddleski and kinda balances OK - will leap off and swim to shore if a suitable playmate arrives. Dived off the canoe into the water to chase a duck.
She walks casually into the sea and doesnt mind getting her feet wet - hates being bathed tho ! and loves the rub down afterwards.
Her cousin up the road wont even get a toe in ANY water - will insist on being carried or make a big detour !
you made me smile today !
