We’re not sure things could get any cuter than this delightful 4-year-old boy playing with sixteen Basenji puppies!
The puppies are from three different litters but they seem to be all of one mind here – must play with the human!!
Seeing the looks of wonderment and joy on that little boys face is the absolute best! Even Mom & Dad get in on the playtime fun near the end. Because really, who can possibly resist all those frolicking little fun factories?!?
Did you know? The Basenji has earned the nickname “the soundless dog” because they do not bark like a typical dog. They do more of a yodel and other vocalizations.
They also like to stand on their hind feet, similar to a prairie dog or meerkat. They are good at climbing so be sure to have a good fence if you decide to have one as a pet!
Watch the cuteness in this video!
