You SHOULDN'T have a Purebreed dingo. Pet Dingos are usually Dingos mized with Domesticated dogs. A Purebreed Dingo Should NEVER be kept as a pet, as they are wild animals. Even Dingo Mixes should be owned cautiously as they are Half Wild Animal. Some mixes may have more Wild Animal Personality then others.

it is illegal to bring Dingos into the country from Australia, However people do, and they breed them, and sell the pups or breed them with pitbulls, labs, and alot of other kinds of dogs.
after they are born here, they aren't illegal. alot of Dingo owners paperwork will say Red Heeler, or Australian Cattledog which is what Dingos are. the exact same body head and ears, only difference is color pattern.
my Gingers paperwork says Australian Cattle dog, so I google images Australian Cattle dog. these dogs are all blue black and grey,
then I google Images Dingo, and every pic looks just like Ginger.
also Google Images Red Heeler, same thing just like Ginger.
hpoe that answers your question.

its Illegal to smuggle wild Dingos into the USA, However people do, and then they are here. they make wonderful, and intelligent pets because they love people. they breed them with other breeds like labs, pitbulls, and other types of dogs over here, so,then, you have a bunch of puppies like Ginger. when they bring Dingos here from Australia, they call them Red Heelers, or Australian Cattledogs which is what Dingos are. Ginger has spent every second of her life around nice loving people, so even though she has a wild side, she is never aggressive, or obnoxious. she is the most Loved dog I have ever seen.

Australian Cattle Dogs, Red Heelers, and Blue Heelers were bred by mixing Dingoes with domesticated dogs. They are also called Queensland Heelers. But they are all domesticated dogs. I think the breed was developed in 1840, and recognized in the United States by the AKC in 1980. They are not purebred Dingoes. A Dingo is a wild dog, but some people do keep them as pets. There are also Dingo/domestic dog mixes, just like wolf/domestic dog mixes and coyote/domestic dog mixes.

If you are interested in keeping a dingo (or any wild dog or wild dog mix) as a pet, you may want to check local laws to make sure it is not illegal where you live.

There are two color patterns for Australian Cattle Dogs: blue and red. Both colors are acceptable for the breed standard. An Australian Cattle Dog/Red Heeler/Blue Heeler/Queensland Heeler and a Dingo are not the same thing.
