It is a typical region of the Australia, also named wild dog.
They are usually solitary animals, although we can find also gathered in flocks of few individuals, usually less than 10.

Their fur is usually yellow, light brown spots on chest and legs, snout is elongated and dark, resembling a wolf, possess potent feed teeth hunting, not as domesticated dogs eating feed)


Reproduction
These descendants of the wolf usually mate once a year, like wolves do too and unlike domestic dogs can have puppies more than once a year.


Food
They eat everything from small animals such as rodents, rabbits, birds they even get close to people rummaging through garbage, as do wild boars (a clear example can be seen in Barcelona that descend from the surrounding Montjuic mountains for feed on human waste)


Domestication
No pets are in themselves, although there are dingos that has been domesticated since puppies and they can live in a home, most of which can be found are not 100% pure dingos because they have been crossed with domestic dogs.


Precautions
