Fluff Fluff: from camp dog to millionaire mutt

A camp dog from an outback central Australian community has moved from death row to millionaires row after being adopted by a resident in one of Sydney’s richest suburbs.

Fluff Fluff, also known as Mr Fluff or just Fluff, came into the yard of Bob Gosford, who lives in Yuendumu, 300 kilometres north-west of Alice Springs, as a very sick puppy earlier this year.

But the once scruffy mutt has since been re-housed by a volunteer group called PAWS in the Sydney suburb of Darling Point.

Mr Gosford says the terrier cross with one floppy ear has had a name change to go with its new image.

The dog is now called Mali and has managed to outperform many of his new canine neighbours in the style stakes, winning Woollahra Council’s cutest dog photo competition.

“We were sent through a link to the Woollahra Council home page and there’s this beautiful photo of Fluff Fluff in all his glory without the sort of red desert sand,” Mr Gosford said.

“And all of a sudden he turns into a white dog instead of a red dog.

“There he is and he won first prize which was $250 worth of photo shoot.”

‘Advertising cars’

Mr Gosford expects the dog’s career to take-off.

“I think there’s a lot more that Fluff will go on to,” he said.

“He’ll be, you know, advertising cars.

“I think he’ll be getting a few more pedicures.

“He’ll be on the dog shampoo and the dog conditioner.

“You know, he’ll have a diamond-studded collar.”

    The life of a dog sure does seem like the great life.

    If you saw the conditions my Wolfhounds live in you would say that!
