Congo-American Basenshire Terrier

A "Unique Breed" Pet

Congo-American Basenshire Terrier

Many different breeds go into making up most any type of dog, including the so-called "purebred." People do this to get the best traits from different animals to match their needs or lifestyles. This baby was created in Mother Nature's own lab to be the perfect addition to someone's family. Is it yours? Although we are unsure of the exact mixture, going by looks, we had to guess it's the American Staffordshire Terrier and the Basenji that make up quite a bit of the DNA here.

Basenjis are hunting dogs bred in Central Africa. They are used to chase prey into their owners nets. Classified in the "Hound" group, Basenjis are alert, affectionate, energetic, and curious. They can be reserved around strangers, but they are a frisky breed that love to play until the day ends. Once a Basenji opens up to a person, they tend to develop a strong emotional bond with that person. They prefer a more patient and considerate handler to care for them. Basenjis will clean themselves like a cat and tend not to bark much. When they do bark, it sounds more like a yodel. "BAROOOO"

American Staffordshire Terriers are amazingly affectionate and stable dogs. They are friendly, obedient, and eager to please. They make great guard dogs while still being wonderfully gentle with kids. It is important to socialize them early, and often to ensure they stay sweet with other animals. In the early 1900's, images of the Staffordshire Terrier were use by the U.S. as a symbol of American strength and dignity.
