Ever since the film industry boomed in the early 1900’s, people have been featuring our beloved canines in the silver. They have touched our hearts in so many ways. With their amazing skills and human like reactions, they have changed the way on how we look at our pets. They weren’t just pets anymore, they came a part of the family. Dogs have been a stable entity in the Hollywood scene next to humans, of course. Doggie stars that have been featured in major motion films have been an epitome of the perfect dog; obedient, caring, loving, heroic, brave, clean, behave, etc. Even after their death, the public still longs for their movie so much that their “stage names” are carried over by their own offspring to continue the legacy.
