The three wildlings ( Apani , Balan, Daku) visited the vet today for their second vaccination
All went well , although they thought they might die, not happy being in strange unfamiliar area with strange smells and strange people. snorting and coughing, very frightening for our wild kids
They have been well socialised with many, but are becoming more selective and aloof , as is natural wild dingo behaviour.
We continually recieve calls to assist with dingoes bought off Gumtree, one such call earlier this week from a person who had bought a dingo from Gumtree
The dingo was approximately 16 weeks old
The story continued with this young dingo now seeking relocation ,due to being unresponsive and fearful , refusing to come out of hiding .
The sad thing in all this breeding and gumtree
selling is the absolute disregard for the welfare of the animal , it is abhorrent (our wildlife) our dingo is so blatantly bought and dispatched on sites such as Gumtree by breeders who have no regard for the dingo .
Upsetting for the unprepared buyer and traumatic for the dingo .
No advice or knowledge is given in situations such as this.
This particular caller was genuinly upset and i sincerely hope they have been able to find a satisfactory solution to a situation which could have been avoided if research was done prior to buying a dingo.
They are not pets and only with patience understanding and total commitment will you be able to coexist with a dingo .
