    I just wanted to share some more pictures of my new love Otis. He is our 4 month old Basenji pup and he is absolutely lovely. He just got to meet the chickens the other day and he does not know what to think of them...almost a little scared...funny..

    Enjoy, Kycklingmamma

    I had a basenji years ago. Gotta say they are so smart they are kind of scary. The little wheels in their head are always turning. My basenji climbed trees by the way and I have since learned that its pretty common for the breed to do that. Have fun with your new pup!

    So far so good, but we know that will change. The breed is very smart and playful. They say it is like having a three year old in a dogs body...yikes. We will see. There is a reason this is one of the oldest breeds known to man, they have survived thousands of years on the African Continent, by being smart...

    Wow! He is very handsome! [​IMG] When I was growing up, the lady who lived behind me raised and showed basenjis. Hers were red and white. They were very smart and agile. She had to modify her fence to keep them in. I especially liked to hear them yodel. Good luck with your boy!
