I've found with mixed breed Basenjis often the real "tells" are...the very distinctive goofy behaviors. For some reason the silly way of sitting, that particular basenji head-tilt, and habits like wanting to sit/lay practically on top of their chosen person/people seem to carry over more than vocalizations or lack thereof, curly tail, or even eyebrow wrinkles.
So if she's elegant one second and then the most elegant goofball you've ever seen the next maybe she's got some basenji in her!
My name is Merry and I live in the Seattle area. Currently I do not have a basenji but I had a girl named Tano for 16 years. She was my best friend ever and I will never forget her - the good and the bad.
It's great to see everyone sharing stories and photos of their dogs!
