a Huge Australian Box Office Success Story
The story of Allan “Swampy” Marsh and his Maremma dog Oddball. Swampy convinced local authorities to allow Oddball to protect a colony of Little Penguins on Middle Island from wild cats and dogs. Oddball succeeds in his campaign and becomes a front runner for Maremma dogs being used to protect other endangered Australian wildlife.
See right for the original photos taken when Producer Steve Kearney first found the project in 2007 – showing special photos of the one and only real life Swampy Marsh and his dog Oddball, who sadly recently passed away at the age of 15.
"Oddball is fun and thoughtfully minded, with a sweet charm that endears from the get-go"
- Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
