Canis lupus dingo
The Dingo species originated in SE Asia & although populations o remain abundant in Australia the proportion of pure dingoes is declining through breeding with domestic dogs. Dingoes were introduced to Australia some 3,500 – 4,500 years ago. The ‘standard’ coat colour is sandy or orange with white feet. Dingoes rarely bark, they tend to howl, particularly at night, in an effort to attract pack members or to ward off intruders.
