There are some really nice NGSD in foster right now, for the right responsible owner...

Cool. Those are really neat dogs. :) I'm trying to figure out what my state considers their taxonomy, since quite a few places disagree with one another. Some say they're their own species, others say a breed of dog, some say other things. So while I have seen the "Canus lupus dingo" I've seen other places class them differently.

AZA does consider them a breed of dog, according to the San Diego? Zoo's website. And so does Animal Planet (though AP is far from being a reliable source these days).

I bet this question here will probably write me off as an irresponsible person, but do you know if they're intact? And if they come with "pedigrees" to ensure they're pure?

They're really neat animals.

It says on the webpage that they are spayed/neutered. :)

I just see them as a breed of dog too. Something very similar exists in the "wild" of North Carolina itself actually:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolina_Dog

All east Asian primitive dog breeds that traveled with early human migration out of Asia and into Indonesia/Australia/the Americas.

edit: I've seen them at one of my local zoos (Brevard zoo), a couple times a day they are taken out on a leash for a walk through the zoo for people to see them up close and pet them ,etc. Rest of the time they are on exibit by the Flying Foxes (such neat animals). Looked like a smallish yellow mongrel out for a walk, wagging its tail at us :)

Their designation keeps changing; that's why it's so complicated. Their DNA breakdown is extremely close to the Aussie dingo, so they're currently classified the same (unless it just recently changed *again*). Originally, they were their own species (Canis Hallstromi).
I believe the zoos now have to treat them like "dogs" w.r.t. their exercise & socialisation & feeding requirements, which is inconvenient for them & is making them less popular at zoos.

They WERE also considered a recognized breed of dog by multiple registries:
http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/newguineasingingdog.htm (scroll down for a list of registries to check with--I know this is outdated, and the UKC dropped them recently--not sure what other registries still recognize them)

Many of them also come with ISIS numbers. These two probably have that in their background, considering their line, but you would have to talk with Tom at NGSDI for the specifics. He has their lineage tracked pretty thoroughly. I didn't keep up with it. I'm just fostering, since he has limited space.

I will say that these two are the most "dingo-like" of all the Singers I've fostered. They are very passionate, not as reserved, have the little doodle on their heads, and do a lot of the head flips and twirls like the Aussie dingoes do. They are really cool kids.

Most of what passes for "Carolina dogs" now are actually just shepherd/lab or shepherd/pit mutts that people pull from shelters :-/ but yes, if you leave dogs alone in the "wild" long enough, they turn back into a pariah type. :-)

Does Brevard zoo have the Aussie dingos now, too? Pretty sure I heard they had gotten a pair. :)
