We rescued a dog from the streets in India and now it is staying with us. We would like to ID the breed of the dog for feeding and training purposes. I am attaching the photos below.

Is the dog Basenji or is it typical Indian street dog/ Indian native dog ? Kindly help us in identifying the dog.

Thank you.

She looks like the native dog to me. Basenjis are usually stockier or more compact, with shorter muzzles.
She mostly looks like an Indian native dog- But if she was on the streets when you found her, she could be any kind of mix, with a small percentage of basenji or some kind of sighthound.

I'd also weigh in on primitive mix native /local dog. Very sleek and beautiful doggo there. The primitive regression is why the Basenji look would be mirrored. Primitive dogs (Dingoes, Carolina Dogs, Ridgebacks, Phaoroh Hounds, Cretan Dogs, Singing Dogs, Cannan Hounds) all share many characteristics including thick ear leather than can allow some very large ears to stand, curled tail, red/buff colorings.
