The Dingo and the Tree

Julie was a rescue dingo taken in by Merigal Dingo Sanctuary in 1980. She was a loving and gentle girl who played a vital role in PR for the sanctuary and Dingoes.

The run she was placed in was a bit barren, so Berenice planted a tree that grew splendidly for seven years. That year, 1987, the tree blew down just as she was due to whelp. Sadly, Julie died three days later.

Months later the run became Jarrah’s home and Berenice was astounded to see the stump of the fallen tree was growing shoots. By the following year it was growing vigorously and had already reached three metres.

Julie's story is told in the blog https://dingolady.blogspot.com/2018/03/to-julie-with-love-by-berenice-walters.html and in the bok Merigal Dingoes by Pamela King
