African Wild Dogs. Closet resemblance to the Wolf pack. They have a success rate for hunting of 80%, they have an alpha pair, but everyone else is equal in beta. When pups are born, they take turns watching them while the Alpha and hunting party go hunting. They bring back enough meat to feed the babysitters so they don;t starve. They are the only canines in the wild to feed the adults as well as the pups. They all take turns watching the den, and their interactions minic wolves.

The painted dog has many common names, including Cape hunting dog, wild dog, and tri-colored dog.

Known as African wild, painted, or Cape hunting dogs, these endangered canines closely resemble wolves in their pack-oriented social structure.
