The owner of three purebred dingoes in Newtown - urbane, crowded and in the midst of a baby boom - she insists they are not savages but shy, even huggable, companions.

Well, if you say so. I STILL think animals born in the wild and intended to live in the wild ~ should live in the wild. If you want a pet, there are, after all, millions of domestic cats and dogs homeless in shelters.

This is the first I ever heard of anyone keeping these animals as pets.They couldn't have been born in the wild; are there dingo breeders?

My mom had a dingo blue healer cross ... great herding dog. I imagine it was domestically bred.

They are called wild animals for a reason.

I don't know. To me, wild animals are wild and should be respected as such. I don't understand why people are always trying to tame wild animals instead of letting them be what they are naturally.

So what's the big deal? She knows how to handle them Some people can deal with them & some cant. People are afraid of wild animals, I 'm not, she's not! So Let them live their life with out hassling them. I like people to leave me and my feral to live in peace, and my feral include coons, opossums and fox's. I don't have a problem with wild animals.

I had a dingo for almost 19 years. His Mother was a blue healer x dingo and his Dad a full dingo that wandered into my friend's property. He was the most AMAZINGLY Loyal, Loving, Intelligent dog I've ever had the pleasure of sharing my home with. When my Grandkids were babies he was so very gentle around them and when they started walking he would walk with them and stand next to them when they fell down. They would climb up him to get onto their feet again. He's been gone for about 6 years now and I still miss him terribly. His name was Aron.

It's kind of like a loaded gun, they do not mean to hurt anyone, they are just so quick, and teeth are sharp.One thing, it's probably not for the inexperience dog owner.

I'm against anyone owning a wild animal. What happens to the animals if she no longer wants them or they get out and bite someone. They will be killed and it will be her fault.
