Thanks, we love him. We have had him for three months. We saw him on petfinders.com and we made the trip from Orlando to Ruskin, Florida to a very nice no-kill shelter there to get him. I had not had a dog in over 30 years since I was a teenager, but my eleven year old daughter had been pleading for a dog. We got him for her, and I did not realize how rewarding it would be to me to have him as part of our family! We are having so much fun with him and he has turned out to be a very nice companion for all of us!

His two middle two pads on his hind feet are joined as shown in the photo. Do you know what breeds other than basenji have that trait? I know that I need to just give up the idea of knowing what he is, but it is fun to speculate.

Opinions and speculation from people knowledgeable about basenjis are what I was looking for! Thanks for the input! I like his basenji-like qualities which make him a little different than the average mix.

Toby is about 18.5 inches tall at the withers and 33 pounds. He does bark, but he also makes moaning, yodeling type sounds, especially when he sees a cat or raccoon out the window. He doesn't smell like a dog, he grooms alot, his tail is curled in 1 complete circle when he is standing, his paws have some webbing, he uses his paws alot like a cat to hold objects, he wants to go after birds and cats and other critters, insects, leaves, anything that moves outside. He is incredibly affectionate with humans and super playful. He runs very fast, other dogs cannot keep up with him, he also does alot of playful leaping. And he gets up on his hind legs alot. Does anyone have any other thoughts as to what mix he might be? I'll post some more photos in a little bit.
