Nnyane

Nnyane was born in May 2014.

This precious little Wild Dog pup had a very tough start and had to be hand reared.  Nnyane, which is Tswana for “the small one” was named as to her being so little. She is on our school route tour and learners from all over have met this wonderful cutie, while learning all about the African Wild Dog.

We are very proud of her for being a wonderful ambassador for The Centre.
