Thursday, Nov. 4 -- A Fannett Township man recently was found with about 80 of the world's rarest wild dog breed, and experts from around the country are now looking to find them suitable homes.

Prior to the discovery of Hammond's dogs there were about 150 members of the breed known to exist in captivity worldwide, many of them in zoos, according to Tom Wendt of New Guinea Singing Dog International. "This is unprecedented," Martin said.

When Martin visited Hammond's property on Mountain Green Road for the first time on Oct. 5, she heard a canine choir she described as "chilling and beautiful." She spoke with the man about his dogs, then researched the breed and decided that special action would be required.

Two singers were deemed tame enough to go to a foster home in Allentown, Pa., Wendt said. All the other adults lack socialization with humans and will require specialized homes like zoos or sanctuaries. "Whoever takes them needs experience with primitive dogs or exotic animals," he said.

Their cargo was eight female singers with their 17 young puppies and one pregnant female nearly ready to "drop her litter," Wendt said. Also on board were two dogs that had suffered injuries, probably because they were left in pens with their fathers after being born.

The organizations are now looking for monetary donations and homes for the remaining singers, Wendt said.
