Dog of the Day: Kona the Basenji German Shepherd Mix

Another breed mix that was reported by the human, in this case mom. Basenjis are pretty unusual dogs around here, so I wouldn’t immediately guess ‘basenji German shepherd’, but Kona does have the build of a slim sighthound, and the tail and face look a bit basenji-y too. And I can definitely see some German shepherd (or Belgian, or a similar dog) in her too.

Regardless, she’s got a very noble look to her, don’t you think? I ran into her while walking in the rain, as you can see, but she didn’t mind at all. I was quite wet, and she was damp, but didn’t seem to mind at all. She looked picturesque as all get-out standing up there on the wall like some kind of canine goddess statue. And amazingly calm and quiet, especially for an 11-month-old puppy.

She’s a natural. I wonder if we can find her a modeling contract?

    Does she bark? She is gorgeous, regardless!

    Kona only does protective barking when we are at home. Must be Shepherd in her, overwise she is very gentle and quite.

    She is! Every time I’ve met her she’s been very ladylike.
