The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly Basenji, you'll undoubtedly see a lot of traits from the so-called African Barkless Dog. Expect an active, intelligent dog that may be able to scale the fence and find trouble if you don't have enough time to spend with your pet.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the Basenji mix you can expect a lightly-built dog that looks fast and could move with a racehorse-like trot.

Behavior / temperament:
While no one can predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed breed, a dog that's mostly Basenji is likely to be a fun, active companion that likes running and playing. Their instinct to give chase might mean they harass your other pets, so they might be a better choice for the single pet family.
