Have shifted venue to yet another property, and the little dam has coughed up some new customers for me.
There are definitely two different dogs if not three.
One is in good condition, and the other two are in poor condition.
Of the two poor ones, when I zoom in,,,, one appears to have more white on the left rear hock than the other dog.

Taken at differing times of the day.

When stalking around, it is a hive of activity with many paw prints on all trails leading down to the water.
The water itself though small must be of good quality,,,,, hence a healthy growth of bull rushes on one side.

Are these domestic dogs gone feral or cross-bred with dingos?

Great photos. It’s easier for us to plan and achieve when we know they are there. And that they are coming in for a drink in the daytime In the next two or three days I’ll be doing nightwatch over a dam in the dingo / red deer country with my body and rifle is parked somewhere on the side of a hill ...so I’m hoping that either late arv , nighttime or early morning I will have some dogs come for a drink ..... but I’m only there for the night I’m not tough enough to wait all day in this heat this time of the year I’ll take my trail cam too so I can get pics of the dam during the night for the parts that I fall asleep , or if I can identify another drinking source that could also be a potential camera spot. Good luck on the dogs dj

Oh yes, that surrounding bush looks a lovely place to trap. 'Specially leading down to the water... :)

Shape colour and white splash and tips makes me think at least 90 per cent Aussie dingo But im no DNA gene pool doctor.... I have seen dingoes in millmerran , esk, Cecil plains , and cape York and they have all looked like dingoes. No mongrel crosses But that was a long time ago. Times have changed. Wild dogs have changed

Camera was set for 24 hrs, and I deleted 278 pics of crows, ducks, roos, cockatoos etc etc.
Did keep a couple of others of interest including another big goanna.

You'd be hard pressed to get a pure bred dingo on the east coast or even further inland for that matter

Aha,,,, I got up this morning and was gonna add,,,,,,,,,, Ask Grandad,, he would know, but you beat me to the punch Mate.

I had a pretty rough day yesterday, up real early to take one of my dogs to the vet to cut out a recurring abscess on her neck.
When I got there everything went pear shaped, and we ended up having to take her to Brisbane, where she was admitted for a CT scan and a
heap of other tests. Didn't get home till 9-30 pm.
Haven't heard from them so far this morning,,,,,, but the account will be around $8 big ones by the end of today.
The animal hospital charges are $800 per night.

So excuse me if I'm not out chasing feral dogs at the moment.
