From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Chiribaya Shepherd is an extinct breed of dog. It was of medium height, had long, beige colored hair and a short snout. Experts believe that the dogs were prized for their llama-herding abilities. [1]The mummified remains that are the only known example of this breed were discovered by Sonia Guillen, an anthropologist from Peru, while excavating tombs in the Osmore River valley. The dogs were found buried in plots near to their owners which Sonia believes shows the culture had a deep respect for these family companions.[2]
