Dingoes / Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo

These photos show Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo’s Dingo pups at 3 weeks old with their eyes open. The pups spend a lot of time yawning when they are awake. The puppies’ parents Mattie and Naya are one of only about 75 pairs of pure Dingoes worldwide, so the pups are an important addition to the pure Dingo population.  In Australia, Dingoes have widely hybridized with domestic dogs, so pure Dingoes are rare. Mattie and Naya came to the zoo from Australia in 2010 — via ZooBorns
