Look at these amazing wild puppies. I love them. Can anyone suggest their breed?

This is Lycaon pictus or African wild dog or African painted dog. They are of the same family but not of the same genus as what we call the domestic dog or Canis lupus familiaris Linnaeus. In very simple terms, all the domestic dog breeds came from this critter, not the other way around.

Lizzy, thanks for your detailed explanation. I agree, our domestic dogs came from this lineage. I would like to see the mother who gave birth to these cute little ones.
