folks when you don't know the cause if seizure. look in kidney and liver first and treat with Hemp oil. it is amazing for neurological issues.

he looks like Primative dog. if dogs breed randomly over time they end up reverting to the Primative type. pointy nose prick ears.. they are on every continent. enjoy what clearly is a fun dog.

I gotta ask why people keep recommending DNA for identification when THERE IS NO RELIABLE BREED ID TEST....NO NOT ONE..Heck one of the bigger ones has a whole fb page of picture and results that includes bulldogs Id's as poodles.

what part of the country did the dog come from? to me it looks sort of border/cattle dog mix. but looks like a fun dog.

@donc if this animal is connected to any African dogs of recent import. esp from Benin ( a former Portuguese colony that is possible OR while the numbers registered in the US is small....hunter dogs and packs have been in the US since the late 1800s. typically found in New England with pockets in fl, ca, and Georgia.

folks should remwmber that while fanconi shows up the MOST in basenji because we have such a small gene pool, if does occur in other breeds and other animals.
re: Podengo DNA if people want to submit they can but statistically unless there are hundreds of samples to come up with a baseline there would not be comparative info.
We collect samples for other health issues that are a priority for a small population.
Good luck with your dog.

@thepugsmuggler DNA WILL TELL YOU NOTHING ABOUT THE BREED ID. any of them say breed id is for recreation. As a podengo club we specifically have not provided any DNA to breed I'd companies....but if someone says I think it's Podengo...guess what....they tell you it's a podengo. All primitive breeds from the Mediterranean share some common ancestors.

@morsesa ....dear person with misinformation. all basenjis have the same possibility of any health issues. dogs down under came from US stock.
