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.
