This is Chester sitting on my stomach waiting for me to get out of bed and feed him one morning. ^_^
I rescued him from the streets last November. I love him a lot.

...Sorry if the pic comes out sideways like they sometimes do when I upload from my iPhone.

Thank you.

Basenjis are definitely not for everyone, but for the right person they are awesome. My Kiora is a rescue and so she can be difficult; she had little socialization as a pup and so she is very untrusting of strangers, but I love her very much.

They are high energy. Kiora is 7 and she could go for hours but now she can also chill out which is great. When she was younger she was an energizer bunny.

They are independent. They are not dogs who will do repetitive tasks or tasks with no personal gain. They are a natural breed and became domesticated when humans needed dogs to pretty much take care of themselves. They do tend to bond closely with their families but to everyone else they remain aloof.

They are intelligent. Contrary to opinions of those not familiar with them (Re The Intelligence of Dogs by Stanley Coren) they are one of the most intelligent breeds. Intelligence does not equate to obedience and work drive. This is not to say that they won't preform or can't compete in dog sports but you have to work with them and keep it fun, a bored basenji is a non-working one.

They are clowns. Basenjis have great senses of humor and like to have fun. It is important for anyone caring for one to also have one. Often their fun can be geared towards destruction. A basenji can figure out anything they set their mind to, which may be how to escape confinement or get their paws on something they want.

If you are interested caring for one I recommend Checking out BRAT: Basenji Rescue and Transport. Because of their non conventional ways there are often basenjis available for adoption.

Cool! Maybe I'll look into one for my next dog. There are a couple in my obedience class and they seem like nice dogs but I have never had the pleasure of knowing one personally. :)

Hi All

I just joined last night and am venturing into the wonderful world of Betta's. Right now i keep Malawi Cichlids and some Tang's and have for about 7 years. A good few of them are wild, but having always liked betta's, i've decided now is the time to get myself one or possibly two Separate tanks of course).

I am also slave to two kitties who are my babies. Caleb...who is a Siamese Caramel Point and Idaho who is a cream Oriental.
