Overview
The oldest of the Pariah Dogs, this breed is extremely primitive and the subject of much debate. Scientists believe they are not truly domesticated animals. Today, wild populations are thought to be extinct, with limited specimens being kept in zoos or by fanciers. New Guinea Singing Dog's are considered rare and difficult to obtain.
Character
The New Guinea Singing Dog has a fox-like appearance and is noted for their unique vocalization. They are extremely agile and have the ability to climb and jump like a cat. This breed is well-balanced, hardy, graceful, and alert.
Temperament
The New Guinea Singing Dog breed is lively and curious but does not typically form close attachments to human pack members. They are not recommended as housepets or companions. They are aloof and have an exceedingly high prey drive. They do not do well in homes with children, dogs, or other household pets.
Care
Daily brushing is required. New Guinea Singing Dog's rarely need bathing as they are naturally clean. Due to the rarity of this breed there are no known health issues.
Coat
A double coat breed, the New Guinea Singing Dog has an outer coat that is straight, short, and crisp to the touch. The under coat is felt-like in texture and very dense.
Training
The intensity of the New Guinea Singing Dog makes training very difficult. Early socialization is recommended and must be done with respect, fairness, consistency, and with full understanding and knowledge of this primitive breed.
Activity
The New Guinea Singing Dog is active and requires an inordinate amount of mental stimulation. They will become destructive if bored. They excel at escape, so yards must be extremely well enclosed both in heighth and depth.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of New Guinea Singing Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

what is a new guinea dog worth

It is hard to say that about any dog really, since part of it is what would someone pay, or how badly do they want the dog. Even in the same breed, some may be more valuable than others based on their bloodlines, especially ones from a good breeder who have had a history of good health and temperament, clean health testing results and all that.

Do New Guinea Singing dogs actually sing?

Singers make a wide variety of vocalizations, but the "singing" is just howling. They do that a lot! They can do all the other typical vocalizations heard in any dog breed, including growls, barks, yips and so on.

How many puppies do New Guinea Singing Dogs have and how come they're pets when they are rare?

Singers have medium sized litters for the most part. New Guinea Singing Dogs actually don't make very good pets, since they are a very primitive type dog. They are extremely intelligent and are hard to contain (meaning they are excellent escape artists.) Anyone considering keeping one as a pet really needs to know what they are getting into, have adequate fencing (usually a tall fence with a top as they can climb out of almost anything), and want a dog that is not usually very biddable. By that I mean they have a mind of their own and don't really care if they obey commands. They are interesting dogs for those who appreciate a challenge and have the experience to raise them well.

Guinea Singing Dogs do sing compared to barking. Its like a 1 note song and do it for a bunch of reasons.If they all sing together it sounds like a chorus.
