Hello from Washington, DC! My husband and I are adding a young male basenji to our household later in 2017.

@patty Lincoln is 2 years old. We did not neuter him to fix aggression issues.

Hello! Lincoln got neutered 3 weeks ago and before neutering, hadn't shown one lick of aggression towards other dogs. He got his stitches out a week ago. In the past week he has suddenly become dog aggressive while he is on his leash. I've even caught him "stalking" other dogs like he stalks prey (He crouches and walks slowly towards a dog when he spots them). Once he gets close, he lunges and snaps at them. This is completely new behavior, and I am at a loss as to why it's happening! It is very concerning as we live in downtown DC where he encounters dozens of dogs daily. He seems to be okay at the dog park but has also become very mouthy and nippy with people when he is an excited state (i.e., when he's running and playing with other dogs). He nips hard enough to bruise and rip clothing; he thinks it's a fun game. Right now I'm afraid to take him to the dog park at all or let him interact with other dogs. Help!

@tanza Thank you! He started howling mournfully in October and I think it is because he know it is breeding season...
