I live in Iowa and owned a basengi. We kept our dog inside most of the time. Their ears are prone to frost bite so as long as they aren't outside for an excessive amount of time it should be fine. Plus you can always get cute doggy coats for the winter. Basengis aren't always good with younger kids (though the one we had was), so make sure you do some more research before buying one.

I live in WI and own a Basenji. We have a coat for her when she goes outside in the winter and she is absolutely fine. However, she only goes out to go potty. I don't think they would do well in the cold if left out for an extended time.

Basenjis are perfectly fine in the snow/cold weather. If you are still concerned, get a pet coat for your dog.
