Hi my name is Maya and I'm a fast learner, I love puzzle toys like kongs and treatballs and I was the first of my siblings to learn to walk on the lead! I'm very food motivated and if you're looking for a puppy to teach fun tricks and go to puppy school with, I'm you're girl! I love people and I'm always eager to please- I do also get up to lots of mischief!
I'm an outgoing confident little lady (like my mum!) and like my sisters, I love walks, I would make a great companion for an active family who love bush walks and maybe even camping! Kids over 5 only please as I will grow to an energetic 18kg-20!
I would love a home with a canine companion to goof around with, or perhaps you could adopt one of my siblings as well? The only thing that's better than 1 dingo puppy, is two dingo puppies!
Background: Maya and her puppy pack of cuddly siblings came to us from Victoria after they were seized from a private wildlife park that was shut down by authorities. They have lived at Sydney Dingo Rescue since they were 4 weeks old, they have been socialized and handled every day by our wonderful volunteers making them outgoing, affectionate, adventurous pups that would suit many different types of families.
Fencing (ask us if you need a hand! We're here to help):
Maya 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. Send an email inquiry with your name and contact details outlining your current living situation, pets and family members and anything else you think might be relevant, particularly what your house and yard are like. Remember our dingoes typically require an enclosure or modified fencing.
2. We will email you back adoption information and an application form to fill out and return to us.
3. If your application is approved- 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.
4. 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.
