Absolutely not true! They do not "bark" however, they can scream, whine, kind of howl, etc. Many Basenjis make nore noise than regular dogs do... they tend to be extremely vocal with what they have to work with. And they are loud!

They do not bark like most dogs but do make yelp or whine which is more annoying than a real dog bark.

No, it is not true! They have a voice. It is kind of like a yodel because of the shape of their larnyx. They are known as the Barkless Dog for this reason. Here is a link so that you can learn more: www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basenji
