Who needs toys? - I have toilet- paper!

|After adopting Otis, we figured out that he is mostly Basenji (and probably chihuahua and maybe some whippet). Before we had him we knew nothing about the breed, but now we love basenjis! Otis even met one of his basenji cousins at the dog park and they had so much fun together!
I just have some questions about the breed mostly because I am curious, but also because I notice that Otis seems to have a lot of the same likes, pet-peeves, etc. as the Basenji profiles on Dogster.
I have seen a lot of people on Dogster mention their dogs doing the Basenji 500. How would you describe this? Otis sometimes does laps around the apartment and runs across the couches. Is this what the Basenjis do?
While I know it is probably not exclusive to Basenjis, Otis loves undies, socks, towels, and toilet paper. He steals them and then runs to one of his hideouts (under the futon and under the table).I thought it was because he is a puppy, but may this be a Basenji trait that he may not grow out of? We have gotten used to closing all the doors anyway!
Thank you, and sorry for the long post. We love making discoveries about Oat's personality, so your help is appreciated!
