DINGO now spends his retirement days lounging with three other dogs at the house getting into all sorts of trouble. DINGO is still an active dog and likes to be part of the family. Even at 12 years old, he still acts like a working dog and searches the house and yard looking for his toys.
At just under 80 lbs., DINGO thinks he is a lap dog and shares his time on the couch with his sister, Lulu (a 3 year old Chihuahua) and his brother, Bentley (a 3 year old Corgi mix).
