Dingo was picked up as a stray by Animal Care & Control, he had a large wound on his head. After several weeks of sitting at the shelter, ACO reached out to IDTE for help in hopes that training would help get Dingo adopted. Within less than 24 hours of arriving at IDTE, we realized Dingo was an amazing dog and training was not the issue. The kennel environment just didn't highlight Dingo's personality or abilities, as it doesn't with most dogs. Dingo is extremely intelligent, loyal, and fun to train. He has a willing spirit and can do attitude. Dingo loves to jump, climb, and run, would make a great agility dog, he has also shown great potential in being a Search and Rescue dog and has already passed an ability test (See our HR Seminar page). Dingo loves people so much that he will do whatever it takes to get to a person, which is why he would excel at Search and Rescue. Dingo can easily jump 6 foot from a stand, he has jumped over fences when left alone, so he must be in a covered or secured fence. That is dingo's only downfall. Training comes naturally to Dingo and he is more than happy to follow your direction. He bonds easily and will be a great companion to anyone needing an emotional support dog or wants to do service dog training. Because Dingo is so people oriented he doesn't do well left alone for long periods of time. Dingo gets along with other dogs, but he definitely values people more than anything. He is kid friendly and would be a great family dog. Dingo has an active mind, so he does need mental stimulation. He is adventurous and athletic, he would be a great hiking or camping dog. He would also make a good working companion if someone wants a dog that can go to work with them. If you want to snuggle no problem, Dingo is always up to relax but being a couch bum will become boring to him, so he needs someone that wants to do stuff with their dog.
Don't want to adopt but want to help Dingo? Consider fostering him while he looks for his new home. You can also make a donation towards his care. All donations go back into the dogs. IDTE is not a non-profit but the shelter was not willing to standby Dingo, so everything we have done with Dingo has been donated. We have had Dingo since May 2018.
