Is someone playing the Law & Order theme song? Because these pups are howling like police sirens! Meet Kerema, Hagen, Sepik and Bismark, four newborn New Guinea Singing Dogs, the first of the rare breed to be born in the U.K. in the past 30 years.

The Singers are native to New Guinea, and have not been seen in the wild in nearly two decades, according to the Daily Express. The pups were born on Sep. 28 to parents Kota and Belle, who came to the Rare Species Conservation Centre from the Sacramento and San Diego Zoos, respectively.

The pups (shown above) haven’t started howling yet, but they already resemble mom Belle, who howls at the sound of a police car’s siren. “The good news is that even the pups prick up their ears when they hear a police siren,” keeper Adam Mitchell said. “Our hope is that one day they’ll learn to sing as a junior quartet with mum.”
