No. Although both carnivorous mammals, this is where the similarity between Tasmanian devils and dingoes stops.

Tasmanian devils are marsupials, with a pouch in which they rear their young.

Dingoes are relative "newcomers" to Australia, and placental mammals.

Why isn't the Tasmanian devil found on mainland Australia?

The Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii), a carnivorous marsupial native to Tasmania, was once widespread on the Australian mainland. It is thought that the arrival of the Dingo and possibly climate change at the end of the last ice age, may have contributed to its extinction on the mainland. The dingo proved to be a bigger, stronger competitor, and there is strong evidence that its presence wiped out the Tasmanian devil's relative, the Thylacine (or Tasmanian tiger) from the mainland so there is every chance it had the same effect on the Tasmanian devil. As for climate change - it possibly reduced the food sources for the Tasmanian devil. There remains more bushy undergrowth, and thick rainforest for the Tasmanian devil's food to hide in on the island of Tasmania.
