|Doesn't this dog look like a basenji?|
Mostly, pariah dogs are nice to humans, but they don't get chummy with them or anything like that. Sometimes at night, an alpha dog might attack a person who comes into his territory, but usually the person can scare the dog away by yelling or by throwing a rock.

In the pariah dog pack, only the alpha male and female get to mate, which is the same rules as wolf packs have. If the alpha male dies or something happens to him, there is a lot of confusion and squabbling until the dogs figure out who the new alpha is going to be.
