But there’s a point to these videos -saving dingoes.Most people don’t pay much attention to dingoes because they are mostly in Australia.
Many think that dingoes are primarily wild dogs. Yes, they are.They are natural hunters found throughout Australia, but at the same time they are also pets in homes and loved by many families. The dingo has unique eyes and a yellow-ginger coat. This wild dog does make an excellent family pet if introduced young enough to his human family.Many families train their dingoes and start their introduction to domesticated life as young as 8 weeks old.
Theories have traced the lineage of dingoes to wolves, since they share many of the same behaviors and traits.Wild dingoes should remain wild and stay outdoors, however young dingo pups can be domesticated, but this must start at a young age.Older dingoes have developed their hunter instinct and will not adapt to a domesticated environment.
