Visitors to Sydney, Australia’s Featherdale Wildlife Park are saying g’day to the park’s newest residents: five adorable dingo puppies. The three girls and two boys were born July 10th to mother, Smudge, and father, Bear. According to the Queensland Department of Environment, it can be uncommon to see pups, as dingoes only breed once a year. So now is the time to take a trip to Australia!
To celebrate Smudge’s first litter of cuteness, the Wildlife Park hosted a “Dingo Puppy Weekend” on August 13th and 14th, where park visitors had the opportunity to hold a pup and Instagram their time together. Emma Grayson captions her Instagram photo with the pup: “My dad told me not to get eaten by dingos, but I mean come on! Look at those harmless faces.” She’s right—how can you not fall in love with those little golden cheeks and heartwarming eyes?
