Dingoes are wild dogs native to Australia. According to Wikipedia’s Dingo article, they are classified differently from domesticated dogs because, since they were first brought to Australia from Southeast Asia thousands of years ago, they stayed apart from humans and their dog pets. As a result, they retained many traits of their Asian grey wolf ancestor species. Most of today’s dingoes have mixed with domesticated dogs however, making dingo hybrids. As a result, the purebred dingo species has actually become vulnerable.
These little dingo puppies are absolutely adorable. I hope the third dingo doesn’t feel left out! Don’t they look so soft and playful?
