Why would I call her crazy? Her name should be a hint, Loki is the God of mischief in Norse mythology and of course he is male. Our Loki is female and since she is a good part Basenji she can be plain ‘ol crazy at times so the name really fits her. If she doesn’t see you for a few hours, as soon as you walk up to her she throws herself at you, literally! her legs go flailing, her body bounces everywhere and we frankly wonder how she does this and doesn’t get hurt? She looks like she is going through a seizure or something. If she runs to you the mechanism that most creatures have that tells them to stop, doesn’t exist in this dog, she’ll run until your body stops her. She’s crazy alright but she is worth the effort.
We found her in a shelter and found out from our vet she had a broken pelvis at the time so we took care of her and she is healed now but you can tell when she gets up that she is stiff, so as she gets older this can become a problem area.
Anyway, without further delay here is Loki, our crazy Basenji Shepard mix. This pic was taken for Halloween this year at her doggy day care.
