The NSW Govt commissioned the sculture of Army Tracking Dog Caesar for a housing development near the old military barracks at Ingleburne outside Sydney.

The life-size bronze by artist Ochre Lawson, was unveiled on November 22 2016 outside the Edmonson Park railway interchange, just a few hundred metres from the war dog training kennels at Ingleburne camp.
