Country of Origin The Basenji (also known as an African Bush Dog, Congo Dog, or Congo Terrier) is an ancient breed which can be seen depicted on stone tablets in Egyptian tombs. The modern breed originates in the African Congo (Basenji means bush thing), where they were used as pack hunters to chase game into nets. Basenjis were imported to England in the 1930s, then to America. They increased in popularity after being featured as the title character of a popular 1950s book and movie, Goodbye, My Lady. Some Basenjis from Africa were imported in the 1980s, widening the gene pool and introducing the brindle color to the breed.
