Be Aware
# See your States laws regarding keeping as domestic pets and for permitts.



About 15,000 million years ago prior to the glaciation of the Ice Age, Australia and Asia were still joined. The Aboriginal people, Dingoes and other animals already inhabited this area before it becomes separated by water. Most of the dogs were feral and believed to live in packs of about 10-15. Aborigines made it a habit of domesticating them at puppy hood and keeping a number of them in their camps. They made loyal and faithful companions. Like wolves they howl rather than bark. Like Basenjis, Dingo bitches only come into season once a year. These dogs normally hunt in pairs or packs and mainly at night.

Grooming- little is needed to keep the short coat looking good. Bathe when necessary.

Exercise- they need plenty of exercise and can be good climbers and jumpers so high fencing is needed to keep them in.
