Shazza the Dingo is your regular girl next door. Unfortunately, in the outback, next door can be a thousand kilometers away. Luckily for Shazza, she has the gift of mechanical hands, with which she can build a machine that can cover the distance in no time. But for Ty, she would gladly walk anyway. Shazza has a little sister named Naomi.


Shazza first appeared in the level Walk In The Park, where her truck broke down in the road of the forest. To make things worse for her, Blue tongue frills are pursuing her so Ty comes to help her. Shazza can't leave without her water bottle filled up, so Ty has to protect her from the Blue Tongues by knocking rocks on their heads. Afterwords, Shazza gives Ty a Thunder Egg and drives off.

Later, as Ty mounts on Bull, Shazza gives a mission to wrangle up her Emus who are running off to "Greasy Gus's Hamburger Shop" (which made them sick last time). After Ty rescues all her Emus, Shazza gives him another Thunder Egg. Ty later saves Shazza from getting killed by Biker Frills, and she gives him yet another Thunder Egg.

Finally, Shazza is found in Cass' Crest where she picks up the final talisman which one of the frills dropped. However, she gets kidnapped by Shadow who wants to kill her and take the talisman. Ty defeats Shadow, and Shazza kisses him for saving her life. Shazza also appeared in the ending with Ty meeting his parents.
