- A small dog-like creature. They are known to attack livestock.
Dingoes are animals found in non-freezing biomes, uncommonly appearing in packs of 3 to 12 individuals. Meandering predators, slightly smaller than a common dog, they may attack your livestock as well as your dwarves, but are unlikely to kill civilians unless they're alone. They are considerably more common in adventurer mode, however, acting as a more numerous and annoying version of wolves. They possess thick fur which provides them with increased insulation compared to most other animals, and their newborns are referred to as pups.
Dingoes can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets. They give equivalent returns to dogs when butchered, and products made from their parts are worth twice more than those made with more common animal parts.
Some dwarves like dingoes for their coloration.

It should be noted that Dingoes are known for their tendencies to steal dwarven children, especially babies. Their notoriety for baby snatching is second only to that of the Goblin Snatcher.
It is rumored by some dwarves that after successfully stealing a child, the dingo will raise them as its own children, and when they grow adolescent - you get a Dingo man.
