@eeeefarm Thank you. I'm trying my best to keep her comfortable and will just have to wait and see.

@eeeefarm She was just in one home. She was in a few shows, but was too shy, which is why her breeder was seeking to rehome. It's encouraging to know that someone else's b went from biting to loving!

@donc Thank you for your insight. I am giving her time and space, but I live in a big city and worry about what will happen when we go on walks (as you said, a Basenji is not like a Golden Retriever, but most people walking on the street don't know that).

@tanza She is from a breeder. She has a history of being shy and has snapped at a stranger once before, but is usually very loving towards her breeder.

I just picked up my b, 3 1/2 years old, a few days ago. I was expecting her to be skittish around me and my family, but she has already nipped me once and bit my brother (drawing blood). Although I'm sure she felt threatened by my brother (he was standing near her when it happened), I'm worried that she will continue to bite strangers even after she gets used to us. Is her biting a tendency with the breed, or is it just her?
