Did you know that painted dogs are an endangered animal? They are faced with shrinking room to roam in their African home. They are also quite susceptible to diseases spread by domestic animals. There's only 2000 to 5000 left in the world! The African wild dog, also called Cape hunting dog or painted dog, typically roams the open plains and sparse woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa. African wild dogs live in packs that are usually dominated by a monogamous breeding pair. The female has a litter of 2 to 20 pups, which are cared for by the entire pack. These dogs are very rare but you can help by raising money and donate money to the conservation department .
