Hello everyone. My fiance and I just adopted a beautiful all white basenji mix from a local shelter here in SD. He was rescued from a dog meat factory in Cambodia back in Aug.

The shelter had him listed as a basenji / shar pei mix but I am not sure that shar pei is accurate. He does have the swirly basenji tail! Wanted to get some opinions from the forums!!

They also have him as a 2 year old but I think that is an overestimate. He's got such great energy when outside but super calm inside.

Any breed mix guesses for our guy, Chester??!

@kembe thank you! He definitely has insane prey drive. Squirrels are his favorite thing to chase when we are walking in the morning, unfortunately. He does bark but very infrequently and also makes strange howls and yodels mostly. He is a sprinter and runs circles around dogs at the park. His run is more of a trot. The shelter noted that he also thinks he is a lap dog despite his 35lb size, and we definitely see that. He is very agile, almost cat like when he jumps around on things, too!

@kembe yes I definitely will. Been doing some research and jindo is on my guess list. Will post results in a few weeks!
