Basenji Silhouette'

One of my favorite photos of my basenji Kembe. She loves to sit on her heated pad @ the picture window. This photo happen to be taken on FLAG DAY! How appropriate with the basenji silhouette!

A Basenji question made it on a Jeopardy tonight -
“Basenji and Basset are this type of canine, also the subject of an:Elvis Presley song?”
Answer: What is HOUND!
Lol! 😂🐾🐕

Basenjis want to be near “their people”. We become part of their pack. My basenji watches everything I do and wants to be “part of the family”. She knows EVERYTHING that goes on in this house. You might want to reconsider getting a basenji unless you are able to fully accommodate the dog. My basenji does have access to a doggie door - but I would NEVER leave her outside alone 6-7 hours even w/ the accommodations you mention. Having a basenji is like having a 3 year old CHILD - it’s a LIFETIME COMMITMENT! And it’s our responsibility to give the Basenji the BEST possible life it deserves. The basenjis will give back to you more than you’ll ever given them.

I say "no" - these dogs require so much attention and thrive on social contact. You need to be there to constantly reinforce positive behavior and let them know you are there to take care of them.

Today is Kembe’s 14th Birthday! 🎈🎂🎊🎉
We baked her a Doggy 🧁 cupcake with hamburger, oats, eggs, chopped broccoli and carrots - with whipped cream cheese “frosting”! She gobbled it down!❤🐾🐕

Our basenji slept in our bed for the past 14 and a half years. I never in a million years would have thought my husband would have ever allowed it - but he is also crazy about our dog. About 9 months ago I had to put a doggie bed in our bedroom for her to sleep - with her age I was too afraid she might jump off or accidentally fall off and get hurt. To think years ago she use to jump on and off that bed with ease - then a few years ago I had to pick her up and put her on the bed and now I’m fearful that she’ll fall off or hurt herself - it has been a journey. It’s sad that it has come to this - but she’s still happy and definitely wants to be in our bedroom to sleep. Basenji want to be with their pack.

Eating time is NOT negotiable with my B. She has her breakfast between 5:30-6am and dinner between 4-4:30pm. She has this inner biological clock and “dances” and gets very excited when it’s meal time. When DAY LIGHTS SAVINGS TIME occurs I have to stagger the eating time by 30 minutes and it takes about 2 weeks until her new time clock sets in. Lol

Go w/ the young adult if you have the opportunity.Back 12 years ago when I was in search of a Basenji puppy - the breeder talked me into a 1 year old who was returned to her due to a divorce. I had my heart set on a puppy - she said "puppy stage is short-lived" - think of the advantages of having a dog that is potty trained -yet still young. It was a blessing in disguise- my dog has NEVER pooped or peed in my house - she turned out to be the most PERFECT BASENJI I could ask for - my brother who is a basenji owner says - my basenji is 1 in a million - I hit jackpot - she is PERFECT - I love her and could not live w/out her. BEST DOG IN THE WORLD!!!

Harold - I got a good chuckle on your Basenji post. I could relate to a lot of your comments. Your baby is lucky to have you as a Basenji parent! I'd love to see a photo of him!

He is ADORABLE ! Looks very mischievous - especially the photo of him laying on his side! You need to keep him busy and TIRE him out - make sure you give him multiple daily walks so that he can investigate his surroundings and burn off some energy! You can tell from the photos that he is SMART! That's what makes him dangerous - smarter than a 5th grader - lol! Beautiful dog!

You are absolutely right! I can READ my Basenji and know exactly what she's thinking but she can also read me. I think back 12 1/2 years ago when I first got her - in the first two weeks she was able to take off on me where I was chasing her around the neighborhood - it has NEVER HAPPEN SINCE - as I had to become SMARTER than her. It definately takes a different kind of mind-set when dealing w/ a Basenji. I did take my basenji to doggie school which I feel was extremely beneficial- it trained ME how to deal w/ her- lol. Keeping them active is so important - I walk my dog three times a day for a total of 3-5 miles per day. This keeps her stimulated, active, and out in the fresh air. I would hate anyone not to experience the love and satisfaction of having a Basenji but I think they must understand the work and commitment of owning such a a regal breed. It's not fair to the dog unless you're willing to give 110%!
