    We haven't taken many lately as the Vet said she is not meant to be out of her crate at all except for toilet breaks
    But I did take one for everybody of Pax doing time in the slammer lol


    She has toys, blankets, a pig ear and lots more stuff. but she just wants to get out and play so she isn't very happy at the moment

    Great to hear the widdle dingo is well on the road to recovery.
    Poor thing ....having to wait it out in the slammer. It's hard but you just have to be cruel to be kind.

    Good luck with it all. I'm really looking forward to watching Pax grow up.

    We did let her out at one point for 5-10 minutes of puppy play for about 3 days last week(poor thing was bouncing of the crate walls ) but her pressure sore got noticeably worse quickly so we had to stop. She sees us and sh does the full puppy play bow begging us to let her out lol. I have to stay strong for Just 3 more sleeps and then she can play her cast comes of first thing in the morning. She is also booked in for her next lot of Vaccinations, Microchipping and heart worming.

    At this stage we are not having her de-sexed as Dingos are a threatened species and are consider contacting the Dingo Conservation Association about breeding her at least once before she is de-sexed. It also helps Dingos only go on heat once a year, We are also able to lock her away from intact males to prevent accidental litters.

    Gorgeous girl! Sorry to hear about the mishap early on, it's so tough with a mix of little ones.

    I've recently kind of adopted a dingo mix - he looks mostly dingo, but thinking he has Kelpie and maybe even Ridgeback in him.

    His owners were working in a remote Central Australian community and they got to know this fella and brought him home and he is an amazing dog... sounds like you've got experience with dingoes though, so I don't need to tell you how great Pax will be!

    Glad little Pax is on the mend. Sure is a sweetie.

    My old boss has an albine Dingo, male. A very interesting dog to look after.

    When they went away he had to be sent down to the kennels due to fear of escaping. He was kennelled with the boss' Mal because the Mal would bark when they went away.

    Lovely thing about the Dingo was that he didn't bark or vocalise much, was exceptionally clean in the run, never pulled on the lead when taken out to the exercise yards and was a dream dog to look after.

    Those things never changed when he hit maturity at about 9 months of age, but his connection with people did, he became more aloof, but we knew he would. I also assume since your family has had Dingo's before that upon maturity they can be a bit different that way when reaching maturity.

    They had staff BBQ when the dingo was very young & the boss brought out the dingo pup to show the kids and my s/son picked him up while he was sitting on a high bar stool, the puppy squirmed and s/son dropped him, you can imagine my mortification and he was older than 2. Things happen with kids and dogs.

    I love the thicker coat of the Alpine Dingo, very nice looking dog indeed. I'm glad your thinking of the future of the species with your Dingo. All the very best of luck. I'm sure this will be behind you in next to no time.

    Hi all sorry about the lay of reply's it has been chaos with kids, animals and Christmas abit over a month away.

    Pax's cast came off a few weeks ago and she has healed well. Her pressure sores were minor considering she is a puppy, and the only other side-effect was muscle wastage.
    Well her leg is starting to look meaty again after over 3 weeks in the laundry with 2-3x 5 min walks everyday. And yesterday she was allowed out side of leash for the first time for 5 mins. She loved it! She ran and ran and ran... and then rugby tackled my OHs rotti (now 8 months old and weighing approx 30-40 kg) before pinning the giant sook to the ground and munching on his front paws in puppy play :P then she got up and ran some more.

    I do have more pics but it is the end of my internet month and PB taking forever to upload 1 pic so I will upload lots of pic next week when I have full speed again.

    MAC yep I know about the aloof attitude of dingos although I find 9/10 they are fine with the family but can be wary of strangers. Pax is so far fine with people infact at the vets or out and about she just about turns herself inside out for pats . I also make a point of letting children pat her while I hold her. For 2 reasons 1 to help make sure Pax doesn't have issues with kids later and 2 I want Kids to know not all dingos are the Dangerous animals everyone says they are. And lets face it when your 10 it is always cool going back to school the next day and saying "I got to pat a real Dingo!!" :P

    Pax's only has 2 problems.

    She is VERY mouthy. She doesn't bite but everything including humans goes in the mouth and gets a a gentle squeeze of the jaw. Frustratingly my usual method of a light tap on the nose and a deep growl of "No" has turned into her favorite game so I am currently her favorite chew toy grr. I am now trying simply to distract her when she starts chomping on my hand with a toy, it seems to be working so far.

    Her other problem is she hates dry food. We feed Eukanuba but we have to literally lock her in the laundry for 3 hours before she will even touch it and I suspect it more boredom than hunger and then she only eats a tiny amount. Her last vet check the vet had a bit of a go at me because she was skinny and said out right It is my fault for not feeding her enough! I give her the food (she gets 2x times the recommended amount) it is not my fault if the little cow refuses to eat it! Pax loves Kangaroo mince so she gets that everyday, It is one of the only things she will eat, but it doesn't have enough nutritional value alone she really needs to eat her puppy biscuits. So frustrating! Thankfully she does eat some of her food so she isn't starving but she should be eating more. Suggestions are welcome as it is getting ridiculous

    Hi Yazzle. Dingo mixes are great too. It is great to hear someone else with a positive story for these fantastic creatures

    Default I come bearing Photos!

    Pax is better and has finally decided the dry food isn't horrible and is eating more often but she still doesn't really like it.

    But I do have Photos.

    These are of her first run of lead outside. It was only a little over 5 mins other wise she would have stressed her leg to much but it was great to see her out and enjoying herself. And she loved playing with her big rotti brother Kronos

    Kronos trying to be top Dog


    Not that his new status lasted long...


    Here is them stretching there legs down the driveway


    I am not sure who is chasing who here...


    Then play time was over, Pax wasn't happy tho

    Very cool, just love pics of puppies at play. Time just flys when having fun

    Aww, she is such a beautiful dog!

    Is that stuffed toy fluff I spot on your lawn? I only recognise it because I always have some on mine that inevitably gets shredded by the lawnmower. lol
