Based on information, Dingo or warrigal, Canis lupus Dingo is a wild dog type. The Indian Wolf (Canis Indica) is the ancestor of Dingo. Dingo is commonly described as Australian wild dog.
This wild dog is considered to be the same species of dogs singing in Papua New Guinea, a wild dog that has been bred in captivity since several pairs of them were taken from the hinterland of the Papua New Guinea highlands on the border between the two countries Papua and Papua New Guinea in the 1950s and the 1970s. There are about 200 Papua New Guinea’s singing dogs in zoos around the world, but little is known about the ancestors of the famous puppies with their unique vocalizations. However, scientists admit that singing dogs in Papua are the same ancestors as the Australian wild dog Dingo.
