Off the coast of small town Warrnambool lies Middle Island, a sanctuary once home to thousands of the world's smallest penguins. But since foxes learned to cross the shallow channel to the island, penguin numbers have plunged. If they fall below ten, park ranger Emily Marsh will be out of a job and have to move away. This shocks her father, eccentric chicken farmer Swampy Marsh who does not want to see his daughter and granddaughter Olivia leave. The solution comes when Swampy rescues an injured penguin from the island and discovers to his amazement that Oddball, his furball dog, seems to be an expert at guarding penguins. With two weeks until the final penguin count, Swampy and Olivia devise a crazy plan - train the rambunctious and unpredictable Oddball to protect the penguins and save the sanctuary, while somehow keeping the operation a secret from everyone. Based on a real-life event. "Top choice for the family... cleverly-crafted" (Lee Paatsch, Herald Sun Australia). This film is recommended for ages 6 to adult.
