Detroit Zoo welcomes Bush Dog puppies

The Detroit Zoo has acquired two bush dogs this summer, making the zoo one of just six facilities in the United States to care for the rare South-African creatures.

Classified as “near threatened” on a list of threatened species, bush dogs are declining in the wild as human development destroys their natural habitat.

1-year-old sisters, Miranda and Dolly, are living in the small animals’ area and are the first bush dogs to come to the Detroit Zoo in 45 years.
