To anyone hoping that all the hard to find pets always spawn as rares (see comment by Goodlose below), it is not the case.
Found one today after fighting a LOT of prairie dogs. It showed up like a mob at the edge of the pet battle field as I started a fight with an adder and yet another prairie dog. I promptly conceded to the inferior pets and caught him. Poor quality. Boo. As a side note, I never saw an adult giraffe.
