I looked at the traits and characteristics and they match Beckley exactly! If you think my dog could be a Basenji let me know happy dance

no, he looks more like a pit bull mix. I dont think he is a basenji.

What about me? Could I be part basenji even though I only weigh 10 lbs fully grown?

The muzzle is a bit short and tail a bit straight, but certainly there could be Basenji in the mix--I do not see pit bull. Would need more photos to be for sure. Hmmm, does your doggy bark? thinking

My name is Bunmi (meaning Gift from God) and I'm a beautiful black and white purebred Basenji. My family adopted me from Basenji Rescue and Transport (lovingly known as BRAT). Please visit the website for tons of fantastic information about Basenjis...www.basenjirescue.org. Is great fun to look at photos and compare to your dog.

Regardless of breeding, your dog is amazingly attractive and (judging by the gorgeous black coat) a very smart and sweet doggy too.

Hugs and Yodels!
