    xbred dogs can have any markings in the genetic make up of the parent breeds is what I always thought. So if generations ago some of the breeding had markings then surely these pups could have.

    Regardless, they are delicious and I want one!

    From the markings and the hair I'm going with wire haired jack russel... you can't just get markings like that from 2 solid colored dogs.

    What some people do to get noticed.
    These are the BYB's that should not have a dog that can breed.

    On the Dingo front, many years ago a lady had a Dingo at obedience training.
    It wasn't the best one on the class, by far.
    It just never wanted to listen to her.
    But she had a novel way of getting to training.
    She put on a set of inline skates and let the dog (Dingo) pull her along till they got there.
    Then once the class was over on went the skates and off they went.
    So if the laws are still the same we can have Dingo's in Victoria.
    But You do habve things you have to comply with before you get one a little like these PitBull laws.

    Maltese X Dingo? Am I the only person that can see something seriously wrong with that?
    Education not Legislation

    Thats why I posted it... I was like

    And as for crossbreeds you can never tell what your going to get despite the parents. Ive seen kelpie/staffy offspring that look like heelers, markings mean nothing when it comes to crosses!

    The wild dogs around here (most look like dingoes but some look a bit mastiff in the face and brindle) around here eat small dogs like maltese. Actually they eat large dogs as well. A neighbour had a doberman bitch killed and eaten a few years ago. Another neighbour had his working kelpie attacked (he saw the attack and if wasn't a dog fight, it was a run down and kill by a pack of dogs). It managed to escape, but did require extensive vet work to put him back together again. People without secure dog fencing around here lose dogs regularly. As do the cattle producers with calves.

    Anoither point about dingoes - apparently most crosses look like dingos as the genetics that determine their features (size, colour, ears shape etc) are so strong. Meaning the features of a dingo are the most dominant so will override many other breeds features with the first cross. After that the less recessive geans can take over and be seen in the dogs but most first cross will resemble dingoes. I read a genetics artricle once that predicted that if all breeds of dogs were allowed to interbreed randomly than after a number of generations all offspring would resemble dingoes. So I don't think these pups have a chance of being dingo * maltese.

    I used to have a dingo*shepherd. She looked like a dingo with big ears and had the dingo temperament. Shy but dominant, killed small animals if allowed to, escape artist and very very smart (read cunning) but a lovely pet who was very obediant. Just needed managing to reduce the unwanted kill instinct and the escape artist ability.

    I have a dingo/border collie/kelpie she's a bit bigger than the average dingo but definately shaped like one especially in the face, she has black and white markings almost exactly the same as her father (border collie/kelpie) but when she stands in the sun especially after a bath you can really see the tan colour come through in her coat. So I agree about dingo genes being dominant.

    I'd be very surprised if there's any dingo in those pups and if there is it's a miniscule amount.
