Archaeological evidence shows that dingoes arrived in Australia 4,000 years ago. There is no mystery as to who brought them. Southeast Asian seafarers did land in Australia to get fresh water and herbs to treat constipation.
|Dingo in Australia|
The dingo is common across the world today, all the way from India to the Pacific islands. In news videos you see dogs roaming about the street in the background that are absolutely identical to the dingo, same upright tail, same color coat.
People chosen as the distributor of the dingo are the Lapita who moved eastward out into the pacific. This choice is just for convenience. It is definitely wrong. The dog is common everywhere. Let's face it, Timor is so close to Australia that sailors obviously landed here, often.
Genetic evidence places the origin of dingoes in China. This is only where the breed began. It rapidly spread to every country in Asia and Southeast Asia. The dog is definitely a meat eater though. It does not have the capacity to digest starch, so it is said that they did not live with agricultural people. But weren't the Chinese mainly farmers 4,000 years ago? They still are! Dingoes are ancestors of modern dogs, not the other way around.
