Venezuela Dogs of Chavez

FILE - In this Oct. 4, 2013 file photo, two men, one wearing a pig head mask in protest against the slaughter of pigs for human consumption, hold a poster demonstrating Venezuelan independence hero Simon Bolivar as an animal lover, during a demonstration marking World Animal Day in Caracas, Venezuela. Venezuela’s late president Hugo Chavez used to delight in recalling how Nevado, a rare breed of shaggy sheepdog known as mucuchies, fought alongside Bolivar. Chavez rescued the mucuchies, named for the Andean town where the breed originated 400 years ago, from near-extinction in 2008 by providing funding to breed the remaining 23 purebreds.
