DENVER (AP) - Denver Zoo officials say they hope to find mates for two new female African wild dogs now on display.

The Denver Post reports (https://bit.ly/1fNetJR ) the dogs, sisters Tilly and Cheza, were born at Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo in 2012 and are on display in the maternity yard of the Predator Ridge. More than two dozen puppies have been born at the Denver Zoo since the species debuted there in 2001.

The dogs, which can reach speeds of 37 mph, are the largest of Africa’s canine species and get to be about 40 to 60 pounds and two-and-a-half feet tall at the shoulder when fully grown.
