The average height is between 44 and 63cm at the shoulders.
There are three geographical types of dingoes: The Northern dingo, the Alpine dingo, and the Desert Dingo.
Info from ("Dingo - Physical Characteristics")
General Information
Type of cell: Eukaryotic
Number of cells: Multicelluar
Nutrition: Heterotroph
Diet consists of other animals. ("Dingo")
Releases energy by celluar respiration.
Geographic range: Mainly encompasses Australia but also in southeast Asia. ("Dingo")
Their habitats range from deserts to grasslands and the edges of forests. ("Dingo")
Dingoes howl and don't bark which is used to attract pack members and ward off rival dingoes.("Nature Notes - Dingo")
A dingo living in a hot climate will only have one short, single coat while a dingo living in a cold climate will have a thicker, double-layered coat which makes it not too hot or not too cold for a dingo to live. ("Dingos")
Erect ears enable a dingo to hear well for hunting ("Australian Dingo - Canis Lupus Dingo")
By: David Davenport
Evolutionary History
The Dingo is on the bottom of the cladogram under the name African wild dog. The closest relative to the dingo is the dhole.

If the food source a dingo eats becomes extinct, that will make it harder for the dingo to survive which, in result, might cause the dingo to adapt to the situation in the following ways...

They would have to incorporate flat teeth in the back of their mouth along with sharp teeth in the front which will enable the dingo to eat a wider variety of foods that include plants.
They would have to develop tougher paws which will enable them to get to more rough environments and to dig in the earth for a better diet
They would have to develop larger pack sizes and would have to share their food better to enable the pack to get a more nutritious, varried diet.
