The New Guinea singing dog is an extremely rare breed of dog named for its unique and melodious howl, characterized by a sharp increase in pitch at the start and very high frequencies at the end.

Turns out, only around 200 of these doggies now live in conservation centers or zoos all around the world, all of which are the descendants of a few of the wild dogs that were captured in the 1970s.
