We just saved our guy from the shelter. He's 18 lbs. I think he's a bit underweight. The shelter had him listed as a dachshund mix, but no idea what he's mixed with. He's still very shy and learning to feel at home. Does not bark, but makes a wining noise and howls up a storm when excited or upset. Very active, but likes to sleep undisturbed. He cleans himself continuously like a cat lol. Could he be a whippett basenji mix?
Good morning. We recently adopted a rescue pup. His name is Rocky. He's about 16 lbs and 17" high. He's not a very vocal boy. Rarely barks. However, he makes a wining sound and howls when he thinks I've left him behind. He excessively cleans himself like a cat. We've only had him a week, so he's slowly opening up. He's a very sweet and loving boy who definitely likes to sleep. He's about 2 years old. We would just like some input from others if he may be part besenji . The rescue says he definitely has dachshund in him, but very unsure if what else. Thank you for any input. I'm not sure how to add an image of him lol![0_1589550961126_IMG_20200515_083521~2.jpg](Uploading 89%)
We've had our guy for a week now. He's a truly amazing boy. However, he fears my adult son. He can be playing with him, then suddenly charges and and goes for biting. Not play biting. My son is an animal lover and gentle with Rocky. Any suggestions on how to help him understand his big brother won't hurt him. The aggression always occurrs when I'm in the room.
