The Basenji was originally developed in central Africa for hunting purposes in what are now Zaire and the Sudan, but the first traces of a dog similar to the Basenji have been found on the walls of ancient Egyptian tombs of five thousand years ago.

In some African language Basenji can means; 'wild and violent', 'dogs from when we were wild', or 'dogs from long ago'. The noble Basenji is a small to medium sized dog with a slim body and long legs.

Muscular, fast and playful he has a strong hunting instinct, so he loves to chase anything, animals as well as cars! Renowned for the unique properties of not barking, he makes a variety of sounds, including chuckle, squeals and yodel.
