The Australian Dingo is a wild dog unique to Australia. Mainly found in the outback.
The Dingo is a medium sized red to yellow wild dog. Dingoes do not bark, but they do howl, and are found in all the mainland states of Australia.
It is thought they first arrived in Australia with humans from Asia thousands of years ago, although this is not known for sure.
Dingoes are seen as pests by the sheep industry of Australia because of their attacks on livestock.
Today, it is estimated that the majority of the modern “dingoes” are also descended from other domestic dogs. The number of these dingo hybrids has increased over the last decades, and the dingo is therefore now classified as vulnerable.
