The New Guinea Singing Dog is a rare breed with many unique and distinctive characteristics. Covered in fluffy hair, their small round head stretches into their long rectangular muzzle. Dark brown almond-shaped eyes are slightly set back in their head. On top of their head are two uniquely shaped but small ears that stand erect. An extremely long and skinny neck leads to their long narrow body and sunken in stomach. Short muscular legs end with rounded feet. From their back is a long fluffy tail similar to a fox’s tail. A short length fluffy coat covers their body. Coat colors are most commonly shades of red with white markings but can also be black and tan or red without white.
This breed is best trained while is still very young. They tend to become more stubborn and independent as they age. More training patience is needed as the dog ages.
The New Guinea Singing Dog, also known as the New Guinea Dingo, is a wild dog that most believe still exists in the wild. They are isolated to the more remote mountain regions of New Guinea. They make excellent family companions, but require considerable exercise and recreation. They tend to roam off on their own when off lead so keeping them in an enclosure and on lead either by harness or collar is a must. Their song, which is a beautiful, high pitched, modulated howl can be very annoying to neighbors so choosing a smart place to live with a Singer is important. Singers are escape artists. A secure fencing at least 6 feet in height with dig barriers is recommended. Many owners even cover screen windows and doors in their homes to prevent escape.
