Trivia

All dogs that were used in the film (other than the two trained actor dogs that played Hagen) had been from local shelters and went through training for the film. 280 canines were used (according to the producer). By the end of the film, because the dogs were all over the streets with individual trainers all the time during filming, they all found homes. See more »

Dogdom
7 August 2015 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Do you like dogs? Well, there are a lot of them. A story that is sort of allegorical in that the dogs' behavior, which was instilled by their masters (White Gods), is turned against these gods as the dogs become like humans - capable of loyalty, devotion, but also of hate, rage, killing.

I thought some of the roles (dogs or humans) were a little too over-the-top not believable to get emotionally involved. We have bad - parents, merchants, musical conductor, animal control specialists, dog trainers. As for the dogs, although well trained, seemed too well trained.

Storyline is simple. We have a girl, independent beyond her age, roaming the streets at night searching for her lost dog. She finds her dog, but it has changed for the worse. Can it be saved?
