The Basenji, sometimes called the “barkless” dog, originated in Africa and was known in ancient Egypt. Dogs of this breed are gentle and make loyal companions to children. This heavily illustrated book avoids technical language while offering sound advice and reliable information to current and soon-to-be pet owners. Written by animal specialists, veterinarians, and trainers, the titles in this series focus on pets of all kinds–different dog and cat breeds, birds, fish, reptiles, small animals, yard animals, and even exotic pets. All Pet Owner’s Manuals are filled with high-quality photos and instructive line art.
