I have QUITE a few... as a OWNER of an American Dingo... ours is VERY playful, LOVES attention, barks at every person walking by the window, eats kibbles out of my 3 yr old daughters hand (of course we have been teaching both child and dog what is appropriate play and what is not, i think they are figuring it out very well), plays with the cat (in an annoying and sometimes over excited manner) running and jumping is definately something they can do, naturally they are a bit standoffish of new people and ours loves to say hi to everyone who comes over... The style of PLAY our dog exibits is like that of a boxer, huskey and other large dogs who like to punch other dogs in the face and chest bump like a bunch of college fratt boys at a football game... (seriously) We live in a one bedroom apartment, and as long as we get out and go do stuff he is relaxed, happy and just loves to sit on us... :)
It's fascinating to read this and then read a review of the New Guinea Singing Dog. The experiences, and dogs, seem to be basically the same. I guess this is confirmed by a 2010 DNA analysis which seems to say that these two breeds are perhaps identical - and are the closest to wolves of any modern "domesticated" canine.
I would have to double check but I think their DNA is very separate from a wolf, they are both ancient breeds, but i don't know that they share DNA at all... also i often see the NGSD lumped in with the CD/AM and the Australian Dingo... it's funny they were one of my favorite animals as a little girl, the we accidentally adopted him from a rescue lol He's GREAT!!
