Basenji
  • Overview

    butterfly
  • The Basenji is one of the few breeds in the world that does not bark! Bred in Central Africa to hunt lions, the Basenji makes a sound more similar to a yodel, because of its uniquely shaped larynx. Basenjis have independent and aloof personalities, and make calm, loyal companions. They are a very intelligent breed and are easily recognized because of their tightly coiled tails, wrinkled foreheads, and large, erect ears. Basenjis would do well living in a variety of environments.
