The day I got my first Basenji

My First Basenji
I got him without researching first. He was 6 months at the time (4 now). I got him from craigslist.
Left him alone for 15 minutes to go to walmart and get dog food and toys. He trashed my apartment. The list of damage includes:
Shredded carpet (I couldn't open my front door)
Pee and poo everywhere
A hole in my couch
And a destroyed doorway
All of this in a 15 min time span! I NOW know to crate him when I leave.
NEVER get a Basenji without researching and having a crate!! He has been the best dog since though.
Very sweet and dog friendly. Cuddly and an excellent companion since I trained him. He can Sit, Shake, Lay down, and Stay now. He knows also how to "Crate up".
Dynamite comes in small packages with this breed!
