What is an African wild dog?
The wild dog—also known as the hunting dog or African painted dog—has a colorful, patchy coat; large bat-like ears; and a bushy tail with a white tip. Sadly, these unique and intelligent animals are one of the most endangered on earth. The African wild dog population numbers less than 7,000 individuals (per African Wildlife Association) and continues to decline due to habitat fragmentation, human conflict, and widespread disease.
"Throughout Africa, wild dogs have been shot and poisoned by farmers who often blame them when a leopard or hyena kills livestock. The principal threat to this species is habitat fragmentation, which increases human-wildlife conflict and localized, small population extinction due to epidemic disease. Larger populations have a higher chance of recovery from such outbreaks. As human populations expand, leading to agriculture, settlements, and roads, wild dogs are losing the spaces in which they were once able to roam freely." - AWA
The "Wild Dog Collection" was created as a way to shine a light on these beautiful creatures and their plight. This is why a percentage of sales from the collection is donated to help support foundations with scouts that monitor and protect the species. Join us in this mission!
