Default No bark breed

When I start living in an apartment, I plan to own a dog (this will be a while as in 4 years+) what dog breed rarely barks? I heard siberian huskies don't bark a lot, what else?

Basenji's are not mute but their breed characteristic states that they shouldn't bark.

Yeah, they make a strange sound (don't remember how to describe it)
Oh, and I would prefer a medium (such as a Basenji) to a large (malamute sized) dog

i think every dog barks every now and then.i dont understand how some people would tell u-for example- because u live in an apt. that your dog cant bark. cant avoid it. not tryin to be a smart ass..but why not get a cat then ? if u get a dog as a pup, u can teach him/her not to bark...

magnum just dont shut up!!!!!!

Don't get a sheltie, that's for sure.

I think that St. Bernards aren't real big barkers.

Colliekid, dont let anyone fool you saying siberians dont bark, I have many friends with them, and they can raise hell if they want to, in fact they are a lot noisier than my malamutes, that although dont bark often, they can howl the clouds down on a good day lol

Basenjis dont bark as such, they kind of yodel. My daughters ex had 2 and they were a HANDFUL though in other ways, so you might find the barking issue easier to deal with!!!

You DO NOT want a Basenji, trust me on this. They are more of a "breeders/exhibitor's breed". Not for the pet owners of this country, roflmbo. And please.......all the obedience fiends can just not bother to respond, unless they have personally known and worked with a large number of Basenjis! Because otherwise you have no clue what you are up against!!!!!!

Yes, I have known folks with this breed. Jimmy Philips and his wife had many top Basenjis and loved the breed with all their hearts. But they knew what they were dealing with!!!!!

The breed does not bark, but it makes as much noise as any other breed.
