This is the story of one woman's love for Dingoes and her endeavours to prove they were not the savage and sinister brute authorities portrayed them as.
The stories in this book are about three of her Dingoes; Dora, Napoleon and Snowgoose.
They tell how she acquired her first Dingo, eluded being arrested and her Dingo being destroyed then successfully obedience training her Dingoes. They tell how she proved the so called experts wrong about the character of the Dingo but mostly they tell of her love and dedication for the most falsely maligned of Australian native animal.

Reviewed by April Gilly for Readers' Favorite For the Love of a Dingo by Berenice Walters and Pamela Jean King is the tale of Berenice Walters and three of the dingoes that she either bred or welcomed into her home. Berenice always had a fascination with dingoes and when she was presented with a pup, she couldn't turn it away. Dora became her first dingo and through trial and error and applying knowledge she'd gained by breeding cattle dogs, Berenice was able to train Dora to be a respectable and friendly house guest. Napoleon, or Nap, was one of Dora's pups and quickly became the love of Berenice's life. Nap had just as many accomplishments as Dora and had his own personality quirks and ways of doing things. Snowgoose, or Snowy, is the third dingo tale told in For the Love of a Dingo. Snowy's story is told by Pamela Jean King and is simply about Snowy's accomplishments and how she came to be the mother to one lone pup. For the Love of a Dingo by Berenice Walters and Pamela Jean King is very educational and goes to show that pit bulls aren't the only misunderstood breed in the world. The dingo is Australia's most misunderstood and wrongly persecuted breed because few people took the time to get to know the breed, how to work with them and "domesticate" them. With rich imagery and sweet stories that show why Nap was so beloved by Berenice, For the Love of a Dingo is heartwarming and heartbreaking at points. With well placed pictures to help show what is being described, I felt like I was right there with Berenice and Nap as he asked for his tea or when he reclaimed his chair!
