basenji (buh-SEN-jee) - (freq. cap.) n., a small, smooth-haired sight-hound of African origin with a tightly curled tail.


It is typically white + reddish-brown, though it can also be white + black or white + brindle, and it's often described as being unable to bark: its common vocalization is usually rendered "baroo." The home ground for the breed is the forests of the Congo River basin. The name comes from the fuller Lingala phrase mbwá na basɛ́nzi, literally bushland-people dog.
