The Terrimoirine Singing Dog
is a Shaded dog
species found across that continent, particularly the southern half.
It is a wild dog species. They are far less amenable to domestication than were the wolfish ancestors of the Shaded domestic dog.
Imagine [African Wild Dogs]
with their 'tan' patches much redder.
These wild dogs live in packs.
They have unusually melodious howls, which appear to be the source of folk stories associating them with magical powers or particularly discerning musical knowledge. See [the Timoirine Wild Dog in mythology]
