Symbolic Adoptions African Wild Dog Pup

Adopt an African Wild Dog Pup

African Wild Dog Pup

The African wild dog’s scientific name, Lycaon pictus, means “painted wolf,” because of its irregular, mottled coat, featuring patches of red, black, brown, white, and yellow fur. African wild dogs live in packs usually dominated by a monogamous breeding pair. The female has a litter of two to 20 pups which are cared for by the entire pack. Very social, packs sometimes share food and assist weak or ill members. Social interactions are common, and the dogs communicate by touch, actions, and vocalizations. Show More
