Hi KatCuff! This dig is actually a New Guinea Singing dog. They are related to basenjis, but their closest relative is the dingo. Like both animals, their morphology reflects the "wild-type". Bu unlike either dog their voice box is different, enabling them to howl longer than a normal dog or wolf. They are believed to be extinct in the wild; the last singing dog in New Guinea was seen in the 1980's, and only 100 are in captivity.

Looks like a Red-bellied to me. He only has the red hood, and his back is barred black and white, lacking the prominent pied colour of the red head. North American Woodpeckers are so tough to ID because they're all red, black, and white! ;-)
