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.
