* BechdelTest: Red Dog doesn't count as a man, so the film passes despite featuring only three female characters.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The film is based on a book by Louis de Bernières, which in turn is loosely based on anecdotes and even poems collected by Nancy Gillespie. All we know for sure is that there was a dog known to many as Red Dog who traveled Western Australia's Pilbara region, spending much of the meantime in the town of Dampier, adopted a bus driver as his master and [[spoiler: died in 1979 and had a statue built in his honour.]] Much of what else happens to Red Dog throughout the film is based on common elements of various allegedly true events and therefore probably have a kernel of truth to them

* AnachronismStew: The film features a drive-in screening of ''Jaws'' (1975) in 1973. Nobody smokes throughout the film despite there being no restrictions on it.
