It's been my experience that sometimes my basenji just gets it in her head that she doesn't like another dog, and for seemingly no good reason. I have been able to mitigate her behavior, but this is not a cure….
First, an excited basenji is a biting basenji. Make sure he's calm. Make him sit. Exert your dominance. Stand over your dog, look him in the eye. You need to snap him out of his mindset and remind him that you're in charge and he doesn't need to be aggressive.
It will take time and patience, but he can be made more comfortable...
I've also found that walking together as a "pack" helps. The two humans in the middle, the dogs held on a very short leash to either side, and you ignore your dog's aggression, focusing them on the walk itself. After a short while, they should just about forget one another. But this also acclimates them to each other. Good luck!
Nayru has a neighbor
There's an older Basenji boy in my complex. His mom's deaf but she communicated that he was 7. I'm not sure he's full due to his tail (really loose whip) and his size. He's a rangy boy. But you can tell he's got Basenji. Wrinkly face and all.
Did you share the forum info with her? We all love new folks joining.
I haven't seen her again. My honey was coming in late on Friday and said he saw a Basenji and a small white dog being walked by a man. No clue if it is the same B or not.
Saw my neighbor today. She signed that her Basenji had died. He was apparently 17! She loved meeting my little B/W foster boy, Toby, who enjoyed playing with her small white mix. I'm going to keep a note on me with B.R.A.T.'s information so she can may be get another B!
Awe! Thats so sad…at least you got to meet the pup before he crossed the rainbow bridge. She should adopt from BRAT when she's ready for a new dog
