Oddball is a kindly tape based on real events, which makes it even more endearing, as it shows a very nice story that happened in Australia.
Australia is a continent and at the same time an island, in which the animals have evolved apart. In many occasions these animals did not have predators, which have been introduced by the man little by little.
That leaves the local fauna defenseless, so Allan, an Australian, persuaded authorities to allow his dog to be the guardian of a colony of penguins, which was being decimated by the attack of certain animals.
The experience was good, so much so that in the end Allan and his dog ended up protecting other native animals in danger of disappearing forever, due to the action of the predators, who were angry with them.
Thus, Allan’s dog found a way to hang out, while his owner could not be prouder of him.
