A dog similar to the Basenji is depicted in Egyptian tombs of the 4th dynasty. Today's Basenji has excellent features to prevent heat loss and so lives well in warm and temperate climates. Like the wolf it rarely barks but has a peculiar howl. Its tan and white colour provide camouflage while tracking game. The unusual feature is that it has only one sex cycle a year instead of two like in other dogs. It weighs about 10 kgs and is about 42 cms tall.
