Endangered African painted dog pups make debut at Port Lympne

Keepers at Port Lympne Animal Reserve in Kent are celebrating as not one, but three litters of endangered African painted dog puppies have made their public debut.

It's thought less than 3000 of this breed, which is most commonly found in Southern Africa, now remain in the wild.

The birth of these pups, who are now three months old and a mix of males and females, takes the number of African painted dogs at the Reserve, near Ashford, to a staggering 43.
