Dholes are threatened with extinction mostly because of the human attitude towards this animal. A naturalist (in 1940s) once called them "pests of the forest" for whatever reason and people were actually rewarded by the government for every dhole killed till as recently as 1972!!!

Anyways, these guys just look and act like our pet dogs only that these can kill a tiger if they want to!

Dhole dash!

Re: I know you don't know me but...
I finally found some info on it. Apparently it's a regional subspecies thing, though it's really interesting that the ones with white patches are more likely to be dominant in your region. If you're interested, there's more info in this .pdf at chapter 8 http://www.canids.org/cap/CANID6.pdf
