I just checked my B's feet and they are definitely joined but so is our Schnorkie's feet much less though, and our Doxies feet are barely joined like our hands have that skin between the fingers...and yes they do smell like fritos, yumm-o. As far as Otis' general smell, like straw or something that, very faint and pleasant.

with Otis in my heart...
All B's have the web feet. Apparently this trait is uaually found in water breeds? I found a list on the internet about webbed paws when my family was picking the dog for us.
yeah....they shouldn't have webbed feet like a water dog. Some do have the toe pads of the middle toes fused but not all.
Sorry everyone, I did mean the two front toes on the paws. I didn't mean webbed feet, Sorry for ruffling featers
As an Italian and salami eater....all my dogs feet smelt like salami even my new basenji pup Duna. And i dont mean the salami slices,,,but the whole thing on the outside!!!!
But i love the smell ( stink) ha-ha!!!

I totally noticed that paw thing the day we rescued Starla!! As for corn chips ...
Can anyone tell me if Basenjis can "spray," though? We've noticed that if Starla is doing something naughty or if she's nervous, she makes a skunky smell. ... I googled it and didn't pull anything up. Thanks a bunch!!!
