I just saw a pair of the NGSD at our State Fair in Albuquerque, NM. They weren' very active at the time I was observing them. The female was smaller than the male with white on her feet. The male had ablaze of white on his face, neck and white feet. I went online to hear their voices . I don't know about pets since they are dog-aggressive.

As of February 2012 the United Kennel Club has discontinued registering New Guinea singing dogs, because the Singers are now proven to be a subspecies of wild dog closely related to the Australian dingo, and not a breed of domestic dog. Before you consider adding a Singer to your life, please read all the information at: and ask the experts and long-term owners at to be sure the Singers would be a good match for you.

My 11 month old is a mix - they didn't know of what. So cute, everyone says. Just lately, many say she looks like fox - she's a solid medium red/brown (no white). There was a red fox in the yard this a.m. and I had to do a double take as it bolted - I thought my dog got loose! But no. I'm starting to think my dog has NGSD in it, down to the green eyes in certain light and legs fold under like a cat. Interesting to know a possible breed in her!

It's really wonderful to read your comments and see the interest in Singing Dogs. To find a breeder, learn more about Singers or just talk with folks about them you can go to

i have a 1 1/2 year old singer. we didnt know what she was when we first got her. she was easy to train when she was very young (12 weeks) but we trained her on puppy pads. its been 7 months since i have been trying to train her to go outside. it is still a work in progress. she is very good about it when its sunny and dry. but if it rains, or the grass is wet for any reason, she wont go. and people who have singers know you cant make them do anything they dont want to do. my advise to anyone with a baby singer, or wanting one. train them as soon as you get them. they catch on fast, but once they get older and get that independent personality, its more than a challange. defintely for the more experience dog owners.

But we could not train her to do anything. she is now 16 and not doing well and most likely have to be put down by the weeks end we are very sad but we know it is best.she has a spine issue.That is common with dogs with long boddies.we love our dog LUCKY.

We enjoyed Ms. Bixler's article. The only addition should be that there are actually two organizations that are dedicated to the conservation of Singing Dogs. The second one is NGSDI(New Guinea Singing Dog International). NGSDI also sponsors a discussion group on facebook(NGSDI) and has a yahoo group at There are quite a few differences between the two groups. We have found folks in NGSDI and their discussion group both knowledgeable and friendly. They will also help a person find a rescue for adoption or a puppy to purchase.

Complete information on NGSD's can be found at the New Guinea Singing Dog International website. The site includes breed history, rescue & adoption, future litter info, and even a guide to NGSD private ownership. There are NGSD's in private homes. Most importantly NGSDI is planning an expedition to PNG in search of new bloodlines.

Hi all. For more information on NGSD's see the brilliant official New Guinea Singing Dog Conservation Society website. It has everything from breed history to pup adoption. Most importantly the society are planning to send a team to study wild singers in their natural habitat.

I recently saw a NGSD for the first time at Metro Toronto Zoo. Up to that point I had never heard of them. I found it to be a beautiful animal. I would love one for a pet, but my dear little Beagle would object.

I have two Basenji's, who sound very much like the NG Dog. All most the same size, a bit smaller, very much the same traits as NG dog. Hard to train but very loving.

I write from Italy and are fascinated by this primitive dog.

I would be willing to adopt a New Guinea Singing Dog and adequate space would be made available. I do not know if I will be given the chance. My email is claudio.piazz @

My comment is both about the NGSD and a response to Neil.

In some cases it is deemed necessary for the preservation of a breed that it be held in captivity. If you would research the NGSD you would see that is the case with them. They are held both in zoo's and with private owners who are conserving them. Any wild primitive dog in captivity is held against their wishes. Thanks for stating the

We do our best however to provide enriched lives for them.

these dogs don't sing they are held against their wishes and are in stress. Another reason dogs howl is high pitched noises such as a harmonica annoy them. Dr Miller Dog Psychologist
