WAKAN LET FREEDOM RING


You are interested in owning a Basenji?
You have heard a lot of good things about them, and have decided they are the dog for you?
Well.....we think there are a few more things you should know about Basenjis
BEFORE
you take one home!


I WANT A BASENJI
BECAUSE
BUT...
They don't bark...
They can and do make a lot of noise. They scream, they howl, cry, growl, and yodel. They definitely do have a voice.
They are small...
They are a big dog in a small package. They are fast and strong.
They are unusual...
There are more around than you think. Most owners love them too much to let them run loose, and since they do not bark, they can go unnoticed.
They are intelligent...
Basenjis are hounds and were bred to be independent, resourceful and efficient hunters. Very intelligent, they get bored very easily. While entertaining themselves, they can and do get into lots of trouble.
I saw "Goodbye My Lady" and...
While this movie is very enjoyable, it is not a good representation of normal Basenji home-life.
