They’re in danger of extinction in Africa. Their social habits have allowed parvo and other diseases picked up from domesticated dogs to spread through their family groups like wildfire and decimate them.

The horse displaced them. Indians used dogs as beasts of burden, pulling travois with belongings, shelter material, etc, before the arrival [re-arrival, actually], of the horse with the Spanish. After that, dogs were kept mainly as watchdogs for the camp.
