A Tail with Two Happy Endings

Not Your Typical Shaggy Dog Story: A 3 Legged Bali Dog Immigrates to Australia and Sets Up a Successful Pub in Albury-Wodonga.


Bali News: A Tail with Two Happy Endings

(6/10/2006)

Did you hear the one about the three-legged Bali Street Dog that Acts as the Hostess at an Australian pub named in her honor?

Right. We, too, were doubtful of this story's veracity until we recently came across an article in [The Border Mail] confirming that indeed "Nessa," the three-legged Bali dog, actually does exist and works a regular shift at "The Three Legged Dog" bar and restaurant - Albury's newest watering hole named in her honor.

The tale of the tail and its owner begins on Bali's Jimbaran beach where two Australian holiday makers, Matt Dillon of Nowra and Jacinta Mackay of Albury, were enjoying a beachside meal. Jacinta's enjoyment of her meal was disturbed by the sight of a malnourished, dehydrated and discarded four-week old Bali street dog limping through the sand on only three legs where she was almost managing to survive on table scraps.

Taking pity on the pup, Jacintha cradled the pup on her lap. Recalling the meeting, Jacintha said, "She was just the most beautiful girl, and was so placid. You could tell there wasn’t a mean bone in her body."

While fellow Australians were busy shopping in local stores, Matt and Jacintha had "made their purchase" and spent the remainder of their Bali holiday arranging medical care and the "immigration" of Nessa to her new home – Australia.

Discovering that three-legged dogs don't travel well or cheaply, Matt and Jacinta managed to spend some AU$8,000 shipping their dog home to her new home, including a month's quarantine in Singapore and a five-month's quarantine in a Sydney kennel.

That expense and experience now behind them, Nessa's now very much at home in the twin-cities of Albury-Wodonga, towns of 90,000 people straddling the Murray River on the border between Victoria and New South Wales.

On to a good thing and repeating a trick well-learned in Bali, Nessa's known to happily climb into any welcoming lap at her bar and restaurant – "The Three Legged Dog."
