    The New Guinea Singing Dog is one of the rarest dog breeds in existence. Closely related to the Dingo, these dogs used to roam the wild, serenading the island with their unique howls. But today, only about 200 of these dogs remain, and they're all in captivity.
    Scientists believed that the New Guinea Singing Dog went extinct in the wild nearly 50 years ago. After all, the last sighting hadn't been since the 1970s. In 2016, things changed though. Wild dogs with a similar appearance to this breed were found.
