These dogs don't bark, they sing... A Basenji dog "produces an unusual yodel-like sound commonly called a "barroo", due to its unusually shaped larynx" Watch the video. If I heard this sound at night outside on my own, I'd be pretty freaked out... source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basenji

@Blackmage really? did you ever own one??
@minjaeturtles I did have a beagle a few years ago, but was forced to give him to a friend when I moved. I love the sound of beagles baying.
@BlackMage I heard beagles were devil-incarnates though...completely wrecking houses haha. btw, what is "baying"??
@minjaeturtles They suffer from separation anxiety if left alone, so yea they tear stuff up. Originally beagles were used for hunting small game, such as, foxes or hares. Hunters used to have a pack of beagles (which is why they suffer from separation anxiety if left alone) and used long, low howling barks to alert the pack to prey.
@BlackMage ah, thanks for the info! learn something new everyday...
