Basenjis are small, graceful hounds instantly recognizable by their glistening short coat, tightly curled tail, and wrinkled forehead and expressive almond-shaped eyes that convey a variety of subtle, human-like emotions. Basenjis are a lovely sight at a standstill but more impressive yet at a fast trot, when they exhibit the long, smooth strides of a mini racehorse. And yes, it’s true, they don’t bark. But these clever hounds make their feelings known with an odd sound described as something between a chortle and a yodel.
