    Maltese are a pure white dog, dingo are a solid yellow colour. Two solid coloured breeds of dogs would not produce those pups. Its pretty simple you don't need to be a genius to see that.

    I see wirehaired jack russell as someone else mentioned.

    Why wouldnt they?

    I have seen litters from solid parents and the coat is one colour with patches.

    A cross breed can grab the colouring from anything in the makeup even from generations ago. And just as an aside, I watched a doco the other day and dingos were mentioned and one of them they were filming was chocolate and white LOL

    Thats kinda what I meant, that even if you know the parents (and their general history) the pups may not resemble them at all.
    And dingos are only yellow/orange because of our topography. The wilddogs in asian places are generally darker to fit in there.
    So it could be a possible throw back to before dingos were typically yellow/orange and perhaps patchy

    Hasnt anyone ever noticed though that it seems like most maltese crosses end up mostly white but with patches?

    It doesnt seem to matter what they are crossed with, thats how they look....well thats been my experience anyways

    Dingo's are not a solid yellow.
    They do carry genes of colour. The tri colour dingo is a great one for thowing tan/brown with lots of white markings when mated to a gold. And many gold have white toes and the white tip on the tail.
    I owned a dingo/cattle cross ( Bindi RIP ) and my ex had her sister ( Boccer RIP ) and I know they were 100 percent that as I was there when they were doing the deed. Neither of our pups looked like either parent really. Except the ears and eye/forehead structure were definately dingo. Bindi had a large white chest , white socks and of course the white tip of her tail. And she actually what I would class as a small dog,not small as in lap dog but small. Her sister however was a pretty solid red with a very small white bib and the white tipped tail.

    Now as for the crossing of these dogs in the advertisement , I surely dont get why ???


    As for the pups , not my cup of tea lol but in a couple of those shots the head resemblence is very similar to that of a dingo.

    oh and just to add,thier ears didnt stand up till they were older.

    Color genetics can be confusing once you start getting into specific markings. Solid colors are easily determined whether to be dominant or recessive such as 2 dominant black dogs will only produce black. But 2 black dogs both carrying brown will produce both black and brown dogs, with the blacks being either dominant or brown carriers.

    With Dingos I have never seen a dingo with black masking around the eyes like in the photo of the mixed breed pups. In my understanding the dingo would have to carry the gene for that specific marking as the maltese is a solid color. Then you get into the fact that white is a recessive gene, and for the pups to be white the dingo would also need to carry white... BUT if the dingo has white coloring it may just be a white mask covering the entire dog (highly unlikely for the whole litter to be white masked though).

    I'm not doubting that there may be dingo x maltese dogs out there but I highly doubt this specific case is the real deal.

    What I am asuming is that the post that said Dingo do carry or have other that the known Dingo colour, there is also the ones which are sort of like a Kelpie look in some of their colour. As far as i know these ones which are not the solid Golden or yellow colour are the Highland Dingo's.
    I think this is what that poat was on about.
