Overview
The Basenji was originally developed in Africa for hunting purposes. The Basenji is a sight hound, hunting by sight only. They have very strong hunting instincts that persuade them to chase after anything; they love to chase after cars. The name is pronounced Buh-SEN-jee, and they are best known for their bark: They haven't got one. The Basenji is not a barker, however they do have a distinct yodel and wail when they are excited or when hunting.
Character
The Basenji can be somewhat aloof around strangers making him a very suspicious breed. This breed is very intelligent yet independent at the same time making training quite a task. He is very alert, rambunctious and playful making him a lovely family pet, however this breed does love the outdoors and does best with acreage.

Does your Basenji bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Basenji is a very alert and fun loving breed, however is not recommended for an inexperienced owner. This breed has the tendency to become destructive if left along for long periods of time so proper training and confinement will work best for this fault. Basenjis can be very patient and good with children, however should be socialized early to prevent the tendencies to fight with other dogs.
Care
The Basenji is much like a cat being very clean and grooming himself on occasion. This is a little to no shedding breed, however does require some grooming if the coat is to stay in good shape. An occasional brushing with a firm bristle or wire brush works best to remove dead or loose hair from the coat. The smooth coat of the Basenji is very easy to care for.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Basenji has a very short coat, which shouldn't require much grooming. The hair should be short, fine, and somewhat harsh. The hair should not be too coarse, however should not be silky. The Basenji tends to clean himself making the coat very easy to care for and relatively clean. This breed has little to no doggy odor, and sheds very little.
Training
The Basenji should be socialized early to prevent any destruction problems if he is to be home raised, and to ensure that he will do well around children and other animals. Obedience training is a must for this energetic and very alert breed. This breed should have a variety of training methods to keep his attention, as he tends to bore quickly. Variety, consistency, and firm handling work best with the Basenji. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Basenji puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Basenji being so energetic needs quite a bit of exercise. Vigorous daily walks are required as this breed has a lot of energy and can be somewhat tireless. This breed being a hunter has the stamina of such and does best with a fenced in yard. However, the fence should be planted deeply into the ground and rather high to prevent escape as this breed can be an escape artist if proper precautions are not taken. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are there any Basenjis left that do not have the African bloodlines mixed in? I hate striped lines in a good red coat.

If I were you, I would look into breeders in the UKC system then, as the European Basenji is not allowed to have the stripes in the red coat.

Shop for a Jack Russel A true Basenji is going to have African blood lines, and a brindle with striped lines is gorgeous!

A Basenji, like any other dog breed eats dog food. There are many types of dog food you can choose for your dog, from commercially made dry, wet and raw to making your own raw dog food. Please consult your breeder as to what your puppy is eating before trying to change his/her food.

The Basenji is a rare breed in the U.S and even more rare in Canada. I would suggest looking at the puppies that are for sale on this website. Since the breed is far and few between, breeders are holding onto their female pups to see if they are good for breeding or not.

Basenjis are NOT a rare breed.

I'm a Basenji breeder in MS and I'm trying to introduce the Basenji breed to the area. Therefore, the low price of $650.

Not rare at all. And way over-priced on this site.
