Very simple but a wonderful located statue that has been looked after very well. Nice to see the hard working dogs of the countryside getting the respect they deserve.

We went and got a view of this slightly eccentric local tribute to the dog that made farming the stations up here possible. A beautiful setting on the shores of the lake

On the side of the lake sits this fine statue in tribute not to one hound but all the dogs that have worked over the years in these pastures rounding up sheep for their owners. Good photo stop

Charming iconic monument on the shore of Lake Tekapo - dedicated to the dogs who enabled farmers to farm the slopes of land in the Mackenzie region. Without them it would not have been possible

The Mackenzie sheep dog statue let me think of another faithful dog statue at Shibuya Train Station in Japan. A good place to take pictures for memory.

This statue is located just beside the Church of the Good Shepherd (about 2 mins walk at most). There is a plaque showing the gratitude of the people towards the sheep dog.
