DENVER — What the world needs now is puppies, and the Denver Zoo has delivered.

The zoo proudly introduced four endangered African wild dog puppies born at the zoo back in November.

According to a news release, after spending the past few months in the protective care of their mother, Tilly, the three male puppies, Nigel, Theodore Roosevelt and Livingstone, and one female puppy, Cholula, are healthy, curious and playful, and ready for their public debut.

Zoo officials say guests will have a chance to see the puppies every day from 12-2 p.m. in the Pahali Ya Mwana yard in Benson Predator Ridge starting Friday through the end of the month, and in various habitats throughout Benson Predator Ridge starting Mar. 1, depending on the weather.
