The Basenji Hound
He is Barkless, but "Yodels"

The Basenji is one of the oldest breeds - of ancient Egypt.
He is a short haired, short backed and lightly built member
of the sub-group of hounds known as the "Sighthounds."
The Basenji appears high on the leg compared to his length.
His wrinkled head is proudly carried on a well arched neck,
his body is level, his tail set on high, and curled.  Elegant and
graceful, the whole demeanor of Basenjis is one of poise and
inquiring alertness.  The balanced structure and the smooth
musculature enables it to move with ease and agility.  The
Basenji hunts silently, by both sight and scent.

Basenjis can make a noise if needed, which Basenji
fanciers affectionately call yodeling.  He is a medium sized
dog, very intelligent, independent, affectionate, alert, and has
the potential to be highly trainable for experienced persons.
They are able to outsmart their quarry when out hunting, but
some owners find this ability too much of a challenge in the
home.  Basenjis are always ready for play and are gentle, but
can be destructive if bored.  They are fastidiously clean dogs,
shed a little, so require brushing about once a week.  They
enjoy and need a daily walk.  Basenjis can be aloof with
strangers and do make excellent watchdogs.
