Basenji PitBull Terrier Mix

So if you saw this dog, what would you have guessed it to be? Basenji Pit Bull Mix? Probably not.

It struck me as maybe an African Wild Dog crossed with a Coyote. But as I looked at once I knew what it was I could see the Basenji in it especially around the ears and the furled brow. And the brindle coat made me think of the bully family so this turns out to be an American Pit Bull Terrier and a Basenji mix or a Basenji Pitbull Mix if you like. I would expect this to be a quieter, mellower dog than your typical Pit Bull but it would be a very bright and alert dog.

Other popular Pit Bull crosses are the Rottie Pit Bull Terrier Mix and Pit Bull Catahoula Dog Mix.

    You need to do research on ech breed before giving descriptions….Besenji’s are a lot more high energy then a Pit..

    I’ve also got a basenji/staffordshire mix. He was a rescue that I adopted when he was about 8 months old. He has an incredibly sweet disposition but can be aggressive around other male dogs. Just a wonderful and handsome mix:

    I have a Pitsenji (as we call her), we rescued her when she was approx. 10 months old and she is now about 3 1/2. She is the sweetest dog I’ve ever had and I’ve had dogs, of different breeds, my whole life. She does need her daily excercise, as all dogs do, but she hardly ever barks, she’s a total goofball that loves to play and she gets along with most other dogs. Everywhere I take her, people comment on how pretty she is and ask what she is, most common guess is Dingo! I think this mutt-breed is a great choice for anyone who doesn’t want a lap dog!

      We got a gator nose pit bull/ basengi mix in Galveston at a gas station with a sign that said “Free Puppies”. Being a fan of Ceasar Milan Dog Whisper, I learned how to pick a pup out of litter, by letting the dog pick you. And he came right to me to investigate. This male dog has turned out to be the best dog I have ever owned. We live by the beach so his daily walks consist of fetching a stick out the ocean, and digging in the sand, and greeting all the other dogs running down the beach. He is highley intelligent and training is quick and responsive. My pitsenji broke all the preconceive notions I had of both breeds.

    I have a basenji/pit mix. She shows all the characterics of a basenji as she is very alert & quite energetic. She is a very sweet dog & very attached to me & my husband. She has a very high pitched “bark”. On the pit side, once she hones in on something she does not leave it until I tell her. Love this dog!

    My wife and I have a basenji/ pit bull mix and he is a sweetheart of a dog. Weighs about 65 lbs and is very powerful and very fast with great jumping ability Tenacious but not mean in any way. We also have a chocolate lab and these two are really attached. Both are males (fixed) and inseperable buddies.

    We rescued ours from the dog park. I had no idea what he was at first. The besanji is very agile, Koji ( our besanji-pitt mix) leaps like a puma! Very intelligent dog, just wish he wasn’t so aggressive to our other dogs. We give him nothing but love, not sure what his malfunction is. If you want a guard dog, this is def the breed for you. I get exhausted just watching him on guard. He is only 12 months, go figure haha
