When it comes to dogs and movies they go hand in paw together. Everybody loves a film with a dog in, especially when it involves cute puppies! The saying goes that you should never work with small children or animals; however it is a good job this is ignored as it has helped to create some of the best films of all time. Dogs can be fantastic animals to train with the right people, and all of these pooches have proved this as I take you through some of the most famous movie stars of all time:
Of course the list has to begin with Lassie the gorgeous collie dog. The film has been remade in 2005 but the original movie was from 1943. Lassie was actually called Pal in real life and was the original dog to play the role. He lived in California and was filmed in the TV series too.
Marley and me
This recent film featuring a cute yellow Labrador puppy was taken from the book which was based upon a true story. The story started out with the couple unsure if they could take on the responsibility of having a child, so took on a little pup to start off with. The gorgeous dog of course grew to its full size and caused mischief along the way. As the dog grows up in the film 22 different dogs were hired to play the role of Marley. They must have had to store a lot of pet supplies on the set!
Another dog movie which is based upon a true story which sadly not as many people know about is Hachi. It is a brilliant movie and one that only a select few people would not shed a tear at when watching! It takes you on a journey of how loyal a dog can be to its owner and the Akita dogs featured are beautiful. The dog grows up in the film so it required 3 different dogs to play the roles, these were called Chico, Layla and Forrest.
Of course the big St Bernard Beethoven had to be mentioned, especially as 7 movies where made for this lovable pooch, including a Christmas movie. The first film in the series was release in 1992 and is a classic comedy film. The dog that was the star in the original two films was called Chris and did a fantastic job!
