DISLIKES ~ Uluru dislikes when his brother, Glacier, pushes him around. He also doesn’t like game meat or anything out of the ordinary when it comes to his food.
Occasionally a breeding pair goes to a private home, and Kooyong and Buckley went to live with a husband and wife in Florida. They gave their dingoes great care and made sure they had plenty of love, socialization, and a rich diet. Once settled in her new home, Kooyong had a litter of six pups. Although the whole dingo family had great care, the human family went through a financial rough patch. The husband tried to sell Kooyong’s pups and quickly found out that it was illegal. Facing serious consequences for this misjudgment, he left the home, taking what remained of their funds and leaving his wife and her son alone with all the animals.
Around the same time, Buckley and his three sons had a terrible fight that resulted in Buckley being euthanized due to devastating injuries. With tremendous sadness, the woman decided her dingoes needed placement in new homes. Two of Kooyong’s pups found a home at a zoo. Kooyong, Aussie, Glacier, and Uluru had a terrific foster home in North Carolina until Wild Spirit staff could bring them to their permanent home at WSWS. Because we are a sanctuary and do not want to add to the population of animals kept in captivity, the entire family is now spayed and neutered. Neutering the 3 boys has helped keep the peace, but because they can no longer reproduce, our dingoes are no longer part of the conservation program.
