For anyone who might have heard the story about the dog used in “A Dogs’ Purpose” and wanted to know more, as did I, this was the information that was just sent to me on the topic. (I had posted a giveaway and wanted to give you all the same information I had at this point in case you were also wondering.)

Statement from A Dog’s Purpose Producer Amblin Entertainment and distributor Universal Pictures

Los Angeles, CA (January 18, 2017) – A DOG’S PURPOSE, produced by Amblin Entertainment and distributed by Universal Pictures, is a celebration of the special connection between humans and their dogs.  And in the spirit of this relationship, the Amblin production team followed rigorous protocols to foster an ethical and safe environment for the animals.

While we continue to review the circumstances shown in the edited footage, Amblin is confident that great care and concern was shown for the German Shepherd Hercules, as well as for all of the other dogs featured throughout the production of the film.  There were several days of rehearsal of the water scenes to ensure Hercules was comfortable with all of the stunts.  On the day of the shoot, Hercules did not want to perform the stunt portrayed on the tape so the Amblin production team did not proceed with filming that shot.

Hercules is happy and healthy.”

This relates to the giveaway on my page, posted here. It is for a $50 gift card and pet prize pack and movie items. I wanted to share the information from the show’s producers in case anyone else had questions. If you have any others, please direct them to the movie’s social media or site, as you know everything I do at this point. Here are some links.
