painted hunting dogs

The Wild Dogs of Africa are one of the original dog species, along with wolves and ethiopian wolves. They are not domestic dogs gone feral as it is commonly believed. These dogs have a highly successful hunting technique, but due to their social structure of only the alpha male and female in a pack mating, they cannot breed fast enough, therefore the animals are endangered as their territories are shrinking and competition with humans puts them in the back seat. They are gregarious, energetic and sociable. Every dog has a totally unique pattern on their bodies so identifying an individual is possible.
