5244, AFRICAN WILD DOG 15.75'' are anatomically scaled to create the best reproduction of the life size stuffed animal and the most realistic stuffed animal in the industry.
The wild dog is one of the world's most endangered mammals. The largest populations remain in southern Africa and the southern part of East Africa (especially Tanzania and northern Mozambique). Wild dogs are social and gather in packs of around ten individuals, but some packs number more than 40.
The African wild dog is known by many names, including Cape hunting dog or painted dog. Its scientific name, Lycaon pictus, means “painted wolf,” referring to the animal's irregular, mottled coat, which features patches of red, black, brown, white, and yellow fur. Each animal has its own unique coat pattern, and all have big, rounded ears.
These long-legged canines have only four toes per foot, unlike other dogs, which have five toes on their forefeet.
Though they were once found throughout the continent—from desert to mountain habitats—African wild dogs have disappeared from most of their geographic range. These days, African wild dogs typically roam the open plains and sparse woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa.

African Wild Dog from Hansa’s “portraits in Nature” is a hand crafted collection of realistic plush animals. Artists working in a socially and environmentally responsible studio create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. The “coat” of each character is meticulously cut by hand, never stamped out by a machine. They are sewn, sculpted by hand, and their “fur” is then trimmed into shape. Fabric for the spotted and stripped animals is custom designed and manufactured in small lots to Hansa’s exacting specifications. A teaching tag is included with each animal, listing important facts about their natural habitat, eating habits, and more. Gentle paws, swishing tails, and soulful eyes and faces are lovingly detailed to give each character the life-like look that is unmistakably Hansa, which is why..."Hansa animals touch your heart!"
