Over 35+ pin makers/small business, including myself, teamed in fall of 2019 to create a charity pin campaign to help combat the uncontrolled human-driven fires that burn the Amazon rainforest which destroy not only the habitats of the native animals that live there, but our planet's atmosphere as well.
My contributing animal pin design is the Short-Earred Dog!
You can support the protection of the Amazon by purchasing these charity pins. A portion of proceeds will be donated to non-profit organizations, such as the Rainforest Trust, whose mission is to protect and preserve the world's most vital rainforest. 🌿🌺🌿🌺🌿

You can also help by spreading awareness and sharing these charity pins with others! Every bit helps so let's do our part to save the last of our rain forests! 💚💚💚
Short-Eared Dog (Atelocynus microtis)
One of the native animals found in the Amazon Rainforest. They have short and slender limbs with short and rounded ears as well as a distinctive fox-like muzzle and bushy tail. Their fur color varies from dark to reddish-grey, but can also be nearly navy blue, coffee brown, dark grey, or chestnut-grey to black. They also have webbed paws!
(White fur is not a natural color for them, but I thought it'd be super cute if it was!)
These rarely seen jungle pups prefer undisturbed lowland areas of the Amazon and basins, however they are threatened by habitat loss, prey-base depletion from hunting, and diseases from feral dogs.
