The Web-Footed Dog

Not that he looks like one, but...

this is one of the most rare of all wild dogs!

No one knows much about him, but what we do know is this: 

  • he stays near water,
  • he has webbed feet,
  • and he lives in armadillo holes!

He's called the Bush Dog

Here are pictures of his whole body.  

He has a squat body, short legs, and look at his tail!  It's tiny!

He looks kind of like a marmot.  Ever see one of those?  No?  Okay, here's a side-by-side photograph:

Okay, maybe side by side they don't look a lot alike, but there's some similarity, right? 
Because the Bush dog lives in South America, he eats some strange things...

Tapirs? Agoutis? Capybaras?  Strange animals...

And, get this...I just saw a picture of someone walking a Bush dog on a leash! Here it is, thanks to Jim Scarff:

I wonder what kind of pet they make??

Got questions?  Let me have them...leave a comment for me below!

Thank you for sharing this knowledge. When two or more toes fuse together, this condition is called syndactyly or what is more commonly known as webbed feet. This join that occurs between the toes presents an increased risk in our canine friends. The truth is that dogs with webbed feet are prone to developing instability of their joints, which in turn can trigger arthritis. See more
