The Dingo is a type of wild dog found throughout most of Australia. While its origins are debatable, there are two main theories behind the breed’s existence, one being that they were brought over from Southeast Asia some 4,000 years ago, the other being that they arrived all on their own by crossing the now-submerged land bridge between Australia and Papua New Guinea. Their coat colours vary depending on their region and can be found in shades of tan, ginger, black, and dark brown. They usually have white fur on their feet and the tips of their tail, erect ears, and dark markings around the eyes and muzzle.
