You may ask where’s the surprise in that. Well, no matter how cliched it may sound, it sure is a surprise when something like a puppy falls down from the sky. That’s exactly what happened with this cute furball in rural Australia. Scroll down for the full story!
More info: Wandi Dingo
Some surprises do indeed fall from the sky and such was the case of Wandi
This little fluffer is named Wandi and was found in a backyard in the small town of Wandiligong this August. The family found Wandi after hearing him whimpering in the morning. At first, they thought he was lost, so they left him alone but after no one came looking for him, they figured he might not be a normal pupper.

After being most likely dropped by a bird of prey
They took Wandi to veterinarian Rebekah Day who works in the nearby town of Bright. She noticed that he had scratches on his back and assumed they were probably the doing of some large bird of prey since there were loads of them in the area. “We have seen lambs and small dogs picked up on occasion,” said the veterinarian.

Dingo Discovery Foundation heard about the puppy and got in touch with Day, who agreed to take care of Wandi for a little while, as well as to send off a genetic sample to the University of New South Wales for DNA tests.
The puppy was then taken to Day’s Alpine Animal Hospital in the nearby town of Bright

The results came after a couple of weeks, the foundation was delighted to find out that the little fluffer was actually a 100% purebred dingo! Everyone was overjoyed since it’s very rare for the sanctuary to get to take in a purebred dingo puppy since they are on the brink of extinction. Dingoes are native to Australia but are currently listed as vulnerable species due to reduced numbers by habitat destruction and hunting.
