Red Dog was a Kelpie/Cattle Dog cross born in Paraburdoo in 1971, and died on November 20th , 1979.
He became a real character throughout the Pilbara during the next 9 years. He was known to have traveled to Roebourne, Point Samson, Port Hedland, Broome, Tom Price and Perth. His amazing homing instinct saw him always returning to Karratha or Dampier. A statue of Red Dog can be found at the entrance to the town of Dampier.
