In the bustling streets, it’s hard to overlook the presence of stray animals, especially when they are helpless puppies in need of assistance. Such was the extraordinary encounter with Wandi, an enigmatic puppy that descended from the heavens in Wandiligong, Australia. However, it was soon revealed that this tiny ball of fur is a purebred Australian alpine dingo, a truly rare find.
Whimpering sounds led a family to discover Wandi in their backyard, capturing their hearts with his undeniable cuteness and fox-like facial features. Recognizing the significance of this discovery, the family promptly took the puppy to the Alpine Animal Hospital, where DNA testing was conducted to confirm his unique breed.
Meanwhile, the veterinarian who attended to Wandi, Dr. Rebekah Day, also noticed some marks on the puppy’s back. According to her, these marks were likely due to the claws of an eagle. So, it’s probable that an eagle may have carried Wandi and dropped him off from the sky.
Luckily, the Australian Dingo Foundation heard about the poor puppy and requested to have him transferred to their sanctuary. The foundation is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the conservation of the wild canid.
And so, Wandi’s discovery and confirmation of his breed is indeed a blessing to the foundation. This canine classification is generally native to Australia, with three types present—alpine, desert, and tropical.
Sadly, among the three types, alpine is at the brink of extinction. This is mainly due to habitat destruction, hunting, as well as interbreeding. Unfortunately, in many parts of Australia, domestic-dog-dingo hybrids have started to take over the purebreds.
Wandi Has Grown So Much Since He Was Taken To The Sanctuary
As such, the foundation aims to provide a safe home for Wandi. More than that, they’re also hoping he can become an integral part of their breeding program. In the meantime, the foundation has also created an Instagram page for Wandi.
