Basenjis are also known as the African Barkless Dog, but that is not to say they are quiet. Basenjis yodel. A funny little noise they make when they are happy to see you. If you look hard enough on Egyptian hieroglyphs, you will most likely find a basenji proudly sitting beside the pharos. This watercolor features two puppies, one brindle and one red. Basenjis also come in tricolor and black.
