About Basenjis – The Barkless Dog From Africa
Here is some interesting information about Basenjis. Many people know the Basenji as the dog that doesn’t bark. But did you know that they actually can? It’s difficult but some of them can get a quick bark out if they get excited. Ginger Snap had a warning bark which she’d sometimes get out when someone new came to the door. In spite of this, I wouldn’t recommend the Basenji as a guard dog. They’re more likely to roll over for a belly rub than to chase away a stranger! 😛
Basenjis are very cat-like, so they’re great for someone who wants a quiet, clean, intelligent dog. If you are used to cats, it’ll be an easy transition, since you’re already used to animals that may only listen when they want to. 🤣
