      Does anyone on here know if New guinea singing dogs/dingoes are wild or just feral for thousands of years?

      Google gives conflicting info

      I believe most scientists say they are a breed of domestic dog, although not all say that.

      Its doing quite a good impression of a Thylacine....

      Current thinking is that they were possibly domesticated from a different species or subspecies than the "domestic dog" was, and at a different time, and as such merit taxonomic distinction - however, interbreeding with domestic dogs has since occurred in many populations, so the Singing Dog and Dingo are possibly best understood as a distinct taxon, albeit an impure one.

      No, its not tall enough (or am I thinking of the wrong Thylacine? :confused:).
