@cherif basenjis have thousands of years of instinct. In the wild, the alone basenji becomes a lions snack. They have to be with their pack or they die. A basenji will eat through a wall, or a door to be with their pack mates. You are way better off to give it a bed near you.
Mines eaten two giant holes in a wall and several doorjambs when separated.
Still the best companions I have ever had.
