Canis lupus dingo
This beautiful dingo has reddish brown fur and was a bit shy but couldn't resist the warmth of the sunlight.
Thanks for the comments. Christiane, this one is protected in a wildlife sanctuary in Healesville. That is sad that they are often shot.
I love these beautiful dingos!!
Was this in the WILD? There are not many pure Dingos left in Australia! And the ones we have, we shoot!!! SADLY!!!
Thanks, yes his fur is very thick and healthy, and such a lovely color. Of course I may be biased as I am also a redhead!
I never realized their fur was so thick...nice pics
