The Dingo is a member of a group of primitive dogs characterised by short coats, erect ears, characteristic skull shape and teeth and, most importantly an annual breeding cycle. It is a medium built, elegant and active dog of great nimbleness and agility, and is usually ginger in colour with white points, but can be black with tan points or even white.

............Ok, so Payton's done with her spotlight, if you think that she is more fun than me you're wrong, we are flakes. I am a vegatarian and she like burgers too much. Im more enviromental, which makes me smarter. It's like she's the Zack and I'm the Cody, except for the fact that I'm prettier, and even Payton admits it, but I wont admit it. even though I kinda just did... BUT ANYWAY!!!!
god how I love how you always do that

ok stop it
ok, so now, I will tell you about the Dingo, and the coolioses things about them.

Unlike domestic dogs, which breed twice a year the dingo only breeds once a year
Pure dingoes are becoming rare in some areas due to interbreeding with domestic dogs
The Dingo is commonly found throughout Australia in all habitats, but is not found in Tasmania
Dingoes are mainly carnivorous, but will eat a wide variety of foods including plant material and insects
They are highly intelligent, strong and affectionate
They are strongly territorial and form lifetime bonds with family, either Dingo or human
Cat-like in their agility, Dingoes use their paws like hands, and like to survey their surroundings from a height
Although they seldom bark, Dingoes have a wide variety of vocalisations from melodious singing (howling), to the high pitched yodel, yelp, crow and purr

another info blog

The Dingo has intense eyes that vary in color from yellow to orange. The very mobile, small, rounded ears are naturally erect. The well furred, appearing bushy, tail is relaxed and has good length. The hindquarters are lean and muscular. The coat is soft. It's length, density, and texture vary according to climate. Typical coat colors are yellow-ginger, but can occur in tan, black or white, including an occasional brindle; albinos have also been seen. All purebred Dingos have white hair on their feet and tail tip. Unlike most other breeds, Dingos do not have due claws.

another (im c&p (copy&paste) - ing and some things may apear twice, these are just awsome infor blogs xD )

The Dingo is a breed that has never been fully domesticated. It is almost never kept as a companion. This is partly due to its remote isolation, but also through lack of human intervention. Untrained Dingos are unsuitable child companions and cannot easily be obedience trained. Obedience training is best accomplished by kindness, patience, and a firm but gentle hand. Dingoes can be kept as pets if they are taken from the litter before 6 weeks of age. At this young age they can be tamed, but once over 10 weeks they should not be taken out of the wild. If properly trained and cared for the Dingo can make a very nice unique pet. They are said to be able to perform agility and general obedience. The dingo has some unusual traits - a great tree climber and at times a bit aloof, but these are interesting traits and are in the same category as the dingoes nearest cousin the New Guinea Singing Dog and the Finnish Spitz, but displaying the same characteristics. They do not have the same degree of tooth crowding and shortening of the jaw that distinguish other dog breeds from their ancestor, the Indian Plains Wolf. Also like the wolf, the female Dingo has only one breeding cycle each year. Unlike other dogs, the Dingo chooses a mate for life, sometimes mourning itself to death after the loss of its partner. Often a litter of pups is found in the hollow of a tree, totally protected from all sides, with the dam guarding the front. Even so, pups frequently fall prey to snakes. Families of Dingoes can be heard vocalizing together before a hunt. They have strong cooperative instincts and live in packs. These groups habitually hunt by night. They work silently and only learn to bark from association with other canines. They communicate by a distinctive yelp or howl. The Dingo may hunt alone or in family units, but rarely in packs. Water is a barrier to Dingoes and most will only wade, not swim. Wild Dingoes shy from man and have reverted to the wild. To survive in the wilderness, they have learned to play possum, shamming death. The Dingo rarely shows aggression. Years of persecution have developed a flight rather than bite temperament. Male Dingoes kept as pets are very restless during breeding season. Puppies and breeding season is around May/June. As of right now puppies are only available inside Australia and not for export, however this may change as Dingo fanciers push to educate people about this unique dog. Puppies cost from $500 -$1000 Australian dollars. A Dingo Farm in Australia has over 100 dingoes and are breeding the dog to ensure it is round for prosperity in the 'pure bloodline'.

and just one more about its origins

The Dingo is a wild animal brought to Australia by primitive man in the semi-domesticated state about 4,000 years ago. It is believed that the Dingo is the ancestor of all dog breeds, the base stock of the 600 true dog breeds. The dogs and people made their trek before Australia was cut off from the mainland and surrounded by water. Captain William Damphier, who wrote of the wild dog in 1699, first officially noted the Dingo. Originally kept by some Australian native groups as an emergency source of food. A direct descendant of the original pariahs from the Middle East and southeastern Asia, the Dingo became savage and returned to the wild. With the European's introduction of domestic sheep and rabbit, the Dingo population flourished. Because of the Dingo's preying on man's livestock, the relationship between the two has been untidy and quarrelsome. Man's interference in Australia's perfectly balanced ecology has been essentially blamed on the Dingo. Today a few people are now concerned with the native dog as a "living fossil" and are working toward studying and preserving him. The Australian Native Dog Training Society, based in New South Wales, has raised and trained many Dingoes. Their members put them on display and hold obedience and trick demonstrations and the society's motto is "A Fair Go For Our Dingoes." These dogs re-domesticate quite easily if raised from a young age by a family, but retain the pariah traits of flight and wariness. In many areas of Australia he is still considered vermin and cannot legally be kept. Other areas have stringent permit requirements. The Federal Government classifies the Dingo as wildlife and it may not be exported except from and to registered and approved wildlife parks and zoos. Dingoes are very rare outside Australia.

and there's the end :)
