Here Are 20 Evansville, IN Dogs That Should Star in a Disney Movie
It's always great to hear about shelter dogs getting adopted and then trading in a crate for the Hollywood sign. Last week we shared a good news story about a dog that was rescued from an Indiana shelter and is now a movie star. Some people are even calling Coco the Meryl Streep of dogs. That got me thinking about all of the dogs that are now considered professional actors.
Hollywood and Dogs Go Hand in Paw
I'm always fascinated to watch dogs in movies and as reoccurring pets on television shows like Stella on Modern Family.
Sometimes being the right breed of dog is needed, like the live-action 101 Dalmations from the 1996 Disney movie. Fun Fact: There were actually over 200 Dalmations on set for the filming.
Then there are dogs like Ruby, who have movies made about them. Ruby's story is a series of events that prove even rowdy shelter dogs can be trained, and given a purpose. Rescued By Ruby is a Netflix original movie.

Rent a Dog - Make a Movie?
Our friends at It Takes a Village have a special program called 'Rent a Dog'. You fill out the paperwork and bring an ID, and then you can take a shelter dog on an amazing day out. If I was going to try and recreate a dog movie, this would be one way to get the dogs adopted.
And don't forget about ITV's RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
