In the tradition of Hachi: A Dog's Tale, this is the story of a legendary, lovable red dog who roamed the outback looking for his original master, finding his way into the hearts of everyone he meets, bringing people and communities together, some who find love, and others who find themselves. Based on true events. Written by

Much of the action takes place in the pub, but nobody is smoking. All pubs, especially in mining towns, would have been blue with smoke haze in those days. See more »
[to his bus passengers]
Did you see that?
Well, he almost got run over.
Nah. He was hitchhiking, mate.
Once you picked him up, he remembers, and thinks it's his right to demand a ride anytime.
Pushy bloke. No doubt about it.
He only does that to people he knows?
Of course not. Just the ones he likes.

The story itself (based on a true dog or rather the true dog) is really good. And if you love animals just a little bit, you will adore the movie itself, the story it tells (mostly). I still got a beef with the movie though (no pun intended). For some reason there is a side story that tries to round the whole thing up. Unfortunately it doesn't work at all, being too convenient and too cliché for its own and the viewers good.
You might think I'm pessimistic or too sarcastic with this view, but remember I really like the movie itself, if it weren't for that side story. The dog is really cool and the actors get upstaged by it (obviously). Though this being a movie, they did use more than one dog (haven't checked how many though). The director did a fine job with that
