Thats all just a Rock! Slightly resembles a Dog but not to me! Maybe another animal but ehh! a Dog not really. I have seen plenty of other rocks around Albany more fascinating.

This was just near where we were staying and it does look like a dog. We knew to turn left just after so was a very helpful rock

Ok, it's just a rock. What more can be said? It looks like a dog, and possibly, unique to Albany. I wouldn't drive all that way just to see it, but you might as well drive past it while you are there.

I honestly did not even realise I drove past this until the last moment. Luckily there is a roundabout just past it so I could back track and be underwhelmed twice. Why is this a major attraction?

Easy to miss, but is next to the motel. Just get onto Middleton road and can stop at the shop carpark. It is Something to check out whilst in Albany.

Its a unusual icon of Albany, one i grew up hearing about. We were disappointed that when we finally got to see it some one had (somehow) placed a shopping trolley on its nose ,, spoilt the whole experience for us.

Happened to drive down the road and came across this. If I didn't happen to look to my left I would have missed it!
