Transcript of Red Dog

By Maddi, Ella, Corbin and Sylvie Red Dog Red Dog was born in Paraburdoo in about 1971. He was nicknamed Tally Ho, Bluey, Dog of the Northwest and of course Red Dog. He was first named Tally Ho by Col Cummings (supposedly first owner who brought him to Dampier). He was named Red Dog because when he came to dampier he was covered in the red sand of the Pilbara region. His second owner was John Stazzonelli. He was a bus driver. John's work let red travel as far as Perth, Broome Roebourne, Point Samson and Port Hedland. •After John’s death, Red Dog travelled on his own, taken in by members of community and vets. He was made a member of the Dampier Salts Sports and Social Club, in the Transport Workers Union. He was given a bank account with the Bank of New South Wales and used as a mascot. The slogan was “If Red banks at the Wales, so can you.” He had many friends.
His death was caused by intentional Strychnine poisoning. He was buried in an unnamed grave near Dampier and Karratha. References:

The film Red Dog is set in Dampier, Western Australia. People who live in Dampier are normally only there for about 1 week for work before returning home to come back the next week. People come from all over the world to work at Dampier but only for a small amount of time. Dampier is a very multi-cultural town. There is only about 10 people that live in Dampier permanently. Their jobs would have been working at the pub or the local shop. People tend to not live in Dampier because there is nothing much to do there and not very kid friendly. The workers who fly out to work are normally technicians and trade workers.

By Ella Mining has always been part of Australia’s history and today is one the world’s leading mineral resource nations. In 1960 the Australian government lifted the ban on iron ore exports because of concerns that mineral was in short supply. Up until mid 1960's Western Australia iron ore production very small.
