Is the Dingo Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The Dingo is currently in the process of being recognized as a full species-- a species that is under threat by interbreeding with domestic dogs. This mix should never be performed by intention. If you rescue a Dingo mix, you should not allow your animal to breed and further dilute the gene pool.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. Recent DNA studies have demonstrated that some so-called Dingoes have little or no Dingo in their heritage at all-- evidence that you can't identity this mix just by looking.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed but you are going to need to bring your best dog psychology to the Dingo mix. You must know how to be a consistent, respected "alpha" to a wild dog that can sometimes react differently than you'd expect from the domestic dog. On the positive side, a well-socialized animal could be an utterly loyal family guardian.
