At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

As a codicil to articles on sightings of bipedal dogs, it is possible that some ordinary dog at some stage developed bipedalism.  One of the oldest breeds of dog, the basenji, has a habit of standing on its hind legs.  Surely this could develop into at least partial bipedalism?  

Besides being an early breed, basenjis seem to be primitive as far as domestication goes.  They are not noted for their obedience and they do not bark.  They are employed in Kenya for hunting, but as a breed they originated in the Congo basin.  Their ancestors came from South-East Asia and they are related to dingos.
