SCP-3272-1919 at time of containment, 10/11/200█

Item #: SCP-3272

Object class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures:

Instances of SCP-3272 are to be housed in a kennel run no less than 2 meters by 2 meters per animal, with a communal run of 10 meters by 10 meters per 15 animals. Each instance of SCP-3272 is to be fed kibble in accordance to the recommended amounts for each animal’s body weight, and provided a continuous source of fresh water. SCP-3272-B is to be fed raw meat for half of its nutritional requirement and is to be kept in solitary confinement away from other instances of SCP-3272. Each instance of SCP-3272 is to be fitted with a nylon webbing dog collar suitable to the animal’s size, with a tag to track immunization records and their sub-numeric designation. Each instance is allowed toys that are suitable for the size and demeanor of each animal. Larger specimens are permitted to be ‘milked’ by trained personnel once a week to collect samples to create and maintain a supply of antivenin as necessary.

Description:

SCP-3272 is an anomalous variant of canis lupus familiaris (dogs). SCP-3272 tends to appear as mixed breeds, though purebred examples have been found of the following breeds: German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Lhasa Apso, Rat Terrier, and Chihuahua. SCP-3272 can be distinguished from other members of its species by a secondary needle-like point on the lower canines, connecting to a small, modified salivary gland that produces venom. Testing shows this venom is of similar composition to that of Crotalus atrox (western diamondback rattlesnake). SCP-3272 appears to have control of whether or not it injects this venom when it bites. Antivenin for crotalus atrox may be used with moderate success to treat envenomation if stocks created from SCP-3272 are low.

SCP-3272 instances are in all other cases a member of the canis lupus familiaris species, showing average lifespan, physical attributes, and mental acuity for their respective breeds. In addition, smaller breeds tend to have dry mouth from lack of a full complement of salivary glands.

SCP-3272 is fully capable of breeding with dogs, with offspring of such pairings having a 1 in 14 chance of being another SCP-3272 instance. An SCP-3272 mating with a second SCP-3272 will produce a full litter of SCP-3272 in most cases, with a 1 in 48 chance of an offspring being a normal dog. SCP-3272 will form packs with other dogs and SCP-3272 instances, hunting and using its venom to help take down prey for the pack. SCP-3272’s venom does not exhibit any toxic effect when ingested from prey meat. SCP-3272 is immune to its own venom, and the venom of other SCP-3272.

There are currently ███ instances of SCP-3272 in SCP custody, across several sites.

Addendum:
Currently there have been two known variants of SCP-3272 discovered, designated SCP-3272-A and B, respectively.

SCP-3272-A: SCP-3272-A was a adult male Grey wolf-hybrid found in northern Colorado, near [DATA EXPUNGED]. SCP-3272-A was killed by gunshot during retrieval efforts, and the body was taken to Site-11 for examination. Estimated age at time of death was 7 years.

SCP-3272-B: SCP-3272-B is an adult female coyote hybrid found in central Texas. On 06/06/20██, SCP-3272-B was taken into Foundation custody and placed in containment at Site-11.

Requests to breed SCP-3272 as guard animals are pending O5 approval.
