New animals are being discovered and classified all the time. All the "big ones" may be covered; there aren't any "new" wolves, for example. But there are plenty of other animals, like insects (just to name one), that are "new" to us.

All the time in plants. Two plants can mate and produce a chromosome number greater that either of the original plants posses and can thus form a new species that can be viable depending on another round of polyploidy. Ring species are an example of fast speciation in animals Around the central valley of California exists an amphibian that can not mate with the opposite end type amphibian across the valley. Birds have several ring species that fall under this type of fast speciation. This does not even get into the fast speciation observed in microorganisms.

All dogs are of the species Canus Familiaris. All breeds of dog are the same species.

They may look very very different but they were all bread (by humans over time) from one wolf like ancestor and they can still all interbreed (where practical).
