Basenji and Basenji Mixes are very protective of their families as they were original pack animals, but also very affectionate. They can be very aloof to strangers and sometimes argumentative with other dogs... especially different breeds so training is essential. They're often compared to cats as they're fairly quiet dogs and like to watch over their pack from higher vantage points. At CORE Dog we've trained a few Basenji Mixes in the past as the breed isn't that common in the States / California. Below is a gallery of just a few of the Basenji dogs we've worked with in the past.



Typical traits include - Affectionate, Aloof, Alert, Curious, Playful & Intelligent.
