Dog Basenji

The Basenji is a breed of dog originating from Central Africa, more precisely from the Congo region. It is known for its unique characteristics that set it apart from other dog breeds.

The Basenji is a medium sized dog with an elegant and muscular build. He has a graceful appearance and a lively look. Its ears are erect and small, and its tail is curled over its back.

The Basenji has a short, dense coat that is generally smooth and shiny. The most common colors are fawn, black and tan, tricolor and brindle.

The Basenji is an intelligent and independent dog. He is known for his stubborn temper and reserved nature towards strangers. He is loyal to his family and can be affectionate, although he is not as demonstrative as some other dog breeds.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of the Basenji is its inability to bark. Instead, it produces a unique sound called a "yodel" or "Basenji's cry". This makes the Basenji a relatively quiet breed, although they can express their emotions through other vocalizations.

The Basenji is an energetic dog that needs regular exercise to stay healthy and happy. Daily walks, play sessions and other physical activities are necessary to meet his needs.

The Basenji is generally a healthy breed, but they can be predisposed to certain conditions like hip dysplasia, atopy (skin problems) and eye problems. It is important to consult a veterinarian regularly to monitor your health.

The Basenji is an ancient breed that dates back several millennia. It was historically used by the pygmy tribes of Central Africa for hunting, thanks to its great agility and its instinct for pursuit.
