Australian Champion

Tambuzi How Soon Is Now



Sierra has a wonderfully happy-go-lucky playful temperament. She is Miss personality plus. Playful if not a little high spirited. She is an immensely happy dog. Other pack members are always greeted with a wagging tail and a Basenji ‘pat’ on the head.

She insists that all human visitors are met with a wag of the tail and a kisses. Into the bargain and given the chance, she will also ensure the cleanliness of the ears of all visitors.
