Rare New Guinea Singing Dog Captured on Camera

International Dog News

Described as “shy” and “canny,” the New Guinea singing dog is one of the rarest dogs on Earth. Only about 200 remain in captivity, and in 2008, some experts feared that the species had become extinct in the wild. According to natives of the singing dog’s home territory, it has been years since they heard the dog’s distinctive cry.

In 2012, Adventure Alternative Borneo director Tom Hewitt took a client deep into the untamed wilderness of Western New Guinea Island. There, he took the first photograph of a wild singing dog in 23 years, providing exciting new evidence that this one-of-a-kind dog species continues to survive in the wild.
