Medium Male Dingo Dog

Hi my name is Zeta and I love cuddles! I'm like a little shadow, following around my foster carer and other human friends, keen to tag along for adventures- in the car, at work, to the park! I love the outdoors and running through the long grass almost as much as I love people and lap cuddles.
I have been around my human friends from a young age, I was found lost and alone in a cattle herd in Northern NSW at just 5 weeks old and was raised by the lovely volunteers at Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue.
I would love a family with another large or medium dog or dingo (I will be 18-20kg fully grown) or perhaps someone who is home a lot and can spend lots of time with me, I thrive on companionship and being a dingo I'm very intelligent and cheeky, so a companion dog would keep me active and out of trouble.
I would not suit a home with pocket pets, livestock or poultry.
Zeta is a high content dingo
A high content dingo typically has two dingo parents or a large amount of dingo genetics. High content dingoes are often known as “pure dingoes”. High content dingoes have much stricter fencing requirements due to their climbing ability. You will need ONE OR MORE of the follow BEFORE an adoption trial for a high content dingo can begin.
- A 2.5m colour-bond or paling fence with nothing leaning against or near the fence line
- A 1.8m fence (of any sturdy material) with a 45 degree inward facing over-hang of 60cm to prevent climbing (see here: https://sanctuarysos.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cat-proof-fence-barrier-to-keep-cats-safe-in-the-garden.jpg ).
- A dog enclosure at least 1.8m high with either a full roof or 45 degree inward facing over-hang of 60cm to prevent climbing. Must be at least 25m square (for instance 5m x 5m or 8m x 3m)
- Mesh, concrete or similar around the base of the fence may also be required
Some manufacturers of pre-made dog enclosures include:
Another option is using construction fencing style panels from bunnings or weldedmesh sheets and posts.
Please note at this time pending legal advice we are unable to offer fox kit adoption to private owners.
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 Camden 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 and a yard check has been completed.
