African Painted Dogs – Endangered

October 19th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

While it is true that I am a crazy cat lady, there are some breeds of dogs that I think are incredible. The African Painted Dog is one of them. They are one of the most endangered dog species, and also one of the most beautiful. They have a complicated social structure and thrive in very inhospitable environments… If we humans could just let them live. They will care for weak and injured pack members, and hunt cooperatively. They only have 4 toes on their front feet, unlike all other dog species.
I love their coats, they seem like giant calicoes.
