The Dachshund, meaning "badger dog" in German, is a lively breed with a friendly personality and keen sense of smell. Known for their long and low bodies, they are eager hunters that excel in both above- and below-ground work.
The Basenji with their short coats, moderate size, stunning appearance as adults only add to their appeal. Plus they don’t bark but are not mute. But, they’re little devils! The Basenji may be the only breed where their owners brag about the destruction they wreak. New owners quickly learn to put dirty clothes in the hamper, the remote in a drawer, and the garbage behind a closed door. They also learn that a tired dog is a good dog. And that a Basenji raised with love and patience is a joy unmatched by any other, I describe them as a mix of a dog, a cat, a monkey and a gazelle!
