The Basenji puppy is a compact, sweet-faced hunter of intelligence and poise. They are unique and beguiling pets, best for owners who can meet their exercise needs and the challenge of training this catlike canine. Basenjis are small, graceful hounds standing 16 or 17 inches at the shoulder. They are recognizable by their glistening short coat, tightly curled tail, and wrinkled forehead and expressive almond-shaped eyes that convey a variety of subtle, humanlike emotions. Basenjis are a lovely sight at a standstill but more impressive yet at a fast trot, when they exhibit the long, smooth strides of a mini-racehorse. And yes, it’s true, they don’t bark, but they make their feelings known with an odd sound described as something between a chortle and a yodel. Basenjis are fastidious and will groom themselves like cats. This has been called a ‘cult breed small in numbers, but those lucky enough to own one do so with singular devotion.



We health test dogs being bred and temperament test our puppies. We believe in complete transparency regarding results. This information allows for increased predictability that your new dog fits well with your lifestyle and family members, and will live a long and happy life with fewer vet bills.
