An adorable red cloud kelpie pup paws at the heart­strings in the lat­est trailer for Red Dog: True Blue.

The pre­quel to the smash-hit 2011 movie Red Dog, set in the mid-1960s, is a story about friend­ship, fam­ily and find­ing home wher­ever that may be.

“Not so long ago, a film about a leg­endary dog brought com­mu­ni­ties to­gether,” the trailer voiceover be­gins.

“I’m a stub­born man from a hard land, you may go away but there will al­ways be a home here for you,” Bryan Brown’s char­ac­ter Grandpa says over the clip.

The film stars Levi Miller as Mick, whose life changes for­ever after the re­mark­able dog (ca­nine co-star Phoenix) bounds into his life and be­comes his best mate.

Open skies and the beau­ti­ful red land­scape of the Pil­bara are show­cased in the fam­ily film, which is set on a cat­tle sta­tion that cap­tures the spirit of Australia.

It was par­tially shot on Kar­ratha Sta­tion in the mid­dle of 2015. Mia­ree Pool and its sur­round­ing hills fea­ture in the trailer.

The trailer ap­pears to show Red Dog as a young puppy be­ing found in a box up a tree by Miller at one of the wa­ter holes.

Red Dog: True Blue hits cin­e­mas on Box­ing Day.
