Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A small dog-like creature. They are known to attack livestock.

Dingoes are smaller than regular wild dogs, found in packs in non-freezing biomes. Although their description would imply otherwise, dingoes are not any more prone to attacking livestock than any other natural predator. They are large predators though, and will attack dwarves. Dingoes can be hunted and then butchered at a butcher's shop for mid-value meat.

They also are just as annoying as wolves in adventure mode, and even more common, although smaller and maybe less dangerous.

D4Dwarf.png This article or section has been rated D for Dwarf. It may include witty humour, not-so-witty humour, bad humour, in-jokes, pop culture references, and references to the Bay12 forums. Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

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.
