Best news ever! Not extinct... and genetically diverse enough to thrive if given the chance...

We had a singing X  when we lived in Port Moresby - she had the best singing vocalization and was a great watch dog except the local Tom cat beat her up a couple of times :laugh:

I'm not surprised! The NG Singing Dog is a primitive Asian breed along with Shiba Inus and Dingos. If you have ever heard a Shiba in full song you can clearly hear the family resemblance. Also, Loki was terrorised for many years by my neighbours cat who would lie in wait then spring out and boop his tail. More proof that cats are really in charge :D

Similar to Basenjis - they are also Primitives - and do not bark.  It is generally called yodelling but has a wide range of tone and volume.

Malcolm yodels at the vet when kept for the day, if his emotional needs are not taken care of. The specialist hospital decided that he must be part basenji. As @tdierikx would say... errr! 
 

Also I am disappointed that no one gets or appreciates my bazinga reference. :laugh:
