What happens when you find a starving dog on your morning walk? Well, Cici came home with me, and it looks like she might be a member of our pack. We are still looking for the original owner, but she is winning us over with her fun attitude and smarts. The animal shelter people thought she was part Basenji, a breed of bark-less dog from Africa with a curly tail, but she looks like a German shepherd mix to me. The color markings do look basenji, but she does bark and howl at sirens, she doesn't have the curly tail, and her hair looks like a german shepherd. Either way, she's a mutt who's found a new home.
