Did You Know?
The dog 'Freeway' was really played by two dogs. Casey
, a multi-colored Collie mix, and Kuma, his Aussie mix understudy, were seasoned animal actors who came to the production through "Good Dog Animals", run by professional trainers Guin Solomon
and Steve Solomon
have life stories to rival Freeway's: they were both spotted in shelters by trainers who recognized the right personalities, smarts, and charisma for great onscreen canines. Casey
had been abandoned in the desert, found with an old rope embedded into his neck (he still bears a scar). He was found in the Las Vegas shelter while his trainer was on a shoot there. Kuma
was adopted from the South Los Angeles shelter when he was a just a young puppy. The Kasdans had also adopted their cattle-dog mix, Mac, from an L.A. shelter. See more
Towards the end of the film they take off in one type of aircraft but land in another totally different type after forcing the aircraft to return having spotted Freeway from it. See more
This is the best my back has felt in three years. Joseph, you're a genius.
That's my job. I'm a surgeon. But I'm no genius.
