For anyone who is interested in Penguins and their struggle should watch the Australian movie "Odd Ball", a movie suitable for children too.

It is a true story about a man who owned Mareena dogs, my knowledge is Mareenas are a Spanish breed, introduced to Australia for their protective behavior of flock animals

mostly Alpacas and Sheep.

This man and central character of the movie had used his imagination and mingled them with his chooks.

I am sure there is some artistic license, but the facts of him sending one dog to protect island penguins against foxes is very true and documented.

I wont spoil the story anymore.
