NEW GUINEA SINGING DOG
Commonly referred to as “Singers” by those who know them, the New Guinea Singing Dog (NGSD) is widely considered to be one of the rarest canines in the world. With only two possible sightings in the wild, one being confirmed, there are an estimated 17 left in the wild. So how did Shy Wolf Sanctuary come to rescue two such rare canids? Hunter and his companion Clara (formerly known as Sugar & Luna) were surrendered to a shelter in Texas by their owner. It turns out that there has been a strong effort to breed these animals in captivity, albeit mostly in private hands and not zoos.
