We adopted a girl puppy (Bibi, now Isis) who was wild for 3 months. She is 9 months old now & is sharing a home with a 19-months old male Basenji. Our male dog is intact and will remain so at the breeder's request for some time.
Our male dog (a "large" 26 pound boy) is dwarfed by this girl. She is also very advanced socially. We were looking for a companion for him. His screams when we left him alone were becoming problematic. We were going to get another girl from a breeder but when we heard about her….
She seemed to be very shy with humans at first. She knows how to behave & straiten out dogs! We love our new addition (5 days together as of now)!
However, we do have some concerns. She started showing her attitude not only to our boy, but to us as well! Recently she started snarling and growling at us as well (over our interference in their conflicts over disputed items) We are talking bite ready snarling.
otherwise they play together well.
We are giving her plenty of love & attention.
