Cheeky and Playful
Medium Male Dingo Dog
- Rescue group:
- Sydney Fox Rescue

Herbert (affectionately known as "Herbie") is our cheekiest most playful dingo. Always up to antics, even at 3 years old Herbie is still a big puppy, who loves to climb, run, jump and adventure.
He is looking for an active home who can provide him with lots to do including things like puzzle toys and kongs and lots of bush and beach adventures (he is fantastic in the car and excellent on lead)!
Herbert is great with people and older children, he loves to run and play a game of tug-of-war or football in the yard. But he's a bit too boisterous for kids under 10.
Herbert is one of a number of rescue dingoes surrendered into our care with his brothers when their owners could no longer care for them.
Herbert is not suitable to live with cats, livestock or pocket pets unless they are housed separately/out of view. Herbert is good with other dogs and dingoes and could be rehomed to a home with a canine companion such as a desexed female dog or dingo (large or medium).
Like all dingoes Herbert is a fantastic climber and digger, and will require a dog enclosure or a secure 2.4m meter fencing or a 1.8m with top angling or flat-top extensions (http://www.dog-blog-world.com/dog-fence/), Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue are able to provide dingo proofing for your existing yard for between $200-500 depending on the size of the yard. We can also provide and install 6m x 6m dingo enclosures for $500.
Please note SFR do not rehome dingoes to homes without a dog enclosure or modified dog fence like the one described above.
PERMITS- no permit is required to own a dingo or dingo hybrid in NSW at the present time.
All our rescues come to their new homes desexed, vaccination and microchipped as well as treated for fleas, mites, worms and ticks.
Please note at this time pending legal advice we are unable to offer fox kit adoption to private owners.
Adopting a dingo from Sydney Fox Rescue is essentially a three step process:
1. Fill out an adoption form and send it back to us with an email outlining anything else you think might be relevant, particularly what your house and yard are like. Remember our dingoes require an enclosure or modified fencing.
2. Come along to meet us and our dingoes at our Blacktown shelter or their foster carers home and let us find the right furry family member for you.
3. Before you can pick up your new dingo you will also need to under a house/yard check and pay your adoption fee. No animals are rehomed unless their adoption fee is paid in full.
