Description: The dingo (plural dingoes or dingos), Canis lupus dingo, is a type of wild dog, probably descended from the Indian Wolf (Canis lupus pallipes). It is commonly described as an Australian wild dog, but is not restricted to Australia, nor did it originate there. Modern dingoes are found throughout Southeast Asia, mostly in small pockets of remaining natural forest, and in mainland Australia, particularly in the north. They have features in common with both wolves and modern dogs, and are regarded as more or less unchanged descendants of an early ancestor of modern dogs.
Height: 19-23 inches
Colors: ginger-colored with white
points but black and tan, or black and white pelage patterns of purebred
individuals may be found.
Temperament: The Dingo is a breed that has never been fully domesticated. It is almost never kept as a companion. This is partly due to its remote isolation, but also through lack of human intervention. Untrained Dingos are unsuitable child companions and cannot easily be obedience trained.
Care and Training: The Dingo's weather-resistant
coat takes care of itself. This breed has no doggie odor.
Living Environment: The Dingo is not recommended for apartment life. They are wild dogs that if taken into a family, must not be chained up in a back yard, but should be taken in as part of the family. A securely fenced enclosure is a must. A Dingo needs activity and space. As pets they should not be taken off the leash in a park. They can withstand hot climates.
Health Issues: -
Life Span: up to over 20 years
Country of Origin: Australia
Registries: CKC, ANKC, NKC, APRI
