They have very attractive coats in various colors which includes cream, pale yellow, white, dark red brown, rusty red, yellowish brown and black. Pure bred adult dingoes always have white tip in their tails and usually you will notice that they also have white feet regardless what color their coats have.

Compared to a common domesticated dog of the same size, a dingo has a larger skull and has longer teeth however, both can be interbred.
