re: American Dingo(Posted by LSUwag on 11/23/12 at 12:07 pm to gazelles)
I had a Basenji when I was a kid. I think it is a close relative of these dogs. Looks identical. Anyway, That was one crazy dog. He was very aggressive and territorial. He ended up biting a kid pretty badly and we had the dog put down.
About 20 yrs ago I killed a wild dog while squirrel hunting that looked a lot like that. It came at me and I loaded him up with #6 shot at about 10yds. I don't believe it was a Dingo but it looked a lot like those dogs.
There was a study done a while back that basically said if you put a bunch of different breeds in a big pen and let them randomly breed, eventually you would have a medium size dog, tan in color, black muzzle , pricked ears and curved tail. Hummmmm........
