    From Hunter, Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales.

    'DINGO, OR DOG, OF NEW SOUTH WALES This animal is a variety of the dog, and, like the shepherd's dog in most countries, approaches near to the original of the species, which is the wolf, but is not so large, and does not stand so high on its legs. The ears are short, and erect, the tail rather bushy the hair, which is of a reddish-dun colour, is long and thick, but strait. It is capable of barking, although not so readily as the European dogs is very ill-natured and vicious, and snarls, howls, and moans, like dogs in common. Whether this is the only dog in New South Wales, and whether they have it in a wild state, is not mentioned but I should be inclined to believe they had no other in which case it will constitute the wolf of that country and that which is domesticated is only the wild dog tamed, without having yet produced a variety, as in some parts of America.'
