This small hunting dog originated in Africa and is one of the oldest dogs in the world. Amazingly, they don’t bark. Instead, they let out a cute little yodel. Petite but strong, the Basenji features upright ears, a short coat, a tightly curled tail and extremely expressive eyes.
This breed has an instinct to run and hunt, so to keep him safe, you should consider a fenced yard. Independent and smart, this breed may take extra bonding time to settle into his new family, but once he does, you have a loyal, lifelong friend.
