Two of the chihuahuas used in the movie are in fact Rusco and Angel, the Beverly Hills Chihuahuas. Rusco played the role of Papi and Angel played the role of Chloe in the 2008 movie and it's sequels. Some of the other chihuahuas in the movie also starred in Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (2011) and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! (2012) as Chloe and Papi's kids. See more »
Lufkin, Texas in July has a temperature that ranges from 90° to 99° Fahrenheit with intense humidity. Wearing light jackets and fuzzy hats while riding bikes through the woods would be very uncomfortable there, but suitable in North Carolina where the movie was filmed. See more »
I wanted to tell Kyle, I wanted him to know the truth. But the way he looked at me, the way he looked up to me... I just couldn't do it. A hero always tells the truth no matter what people think about him or no matter what the consequences are. And you have always been that way Justin.

A Great Dog Movie!
Who are these naysayers panning this film? They obviously lack hearts and/or pets. And what is wrong with a predictable movie about a heroic army dog? I found the script actually ambitious in trying to cover a wide gamut of issues. But always at the core of the film is great love for Max and the central characters. It's a family film filled with the angst that everyone experiences in family relationships. It's also filled with great love within the family and the challenges that come with expressing it. The action sequences are breathtaking! I was actually relieved that it was a Disney movie because in the scariest of moments, I hoped Disney wouldn't break my heart. I don't think children under 7 should see this without parents nearby to hold their hands. Tissues are recommended for all but the hardest hearted movie critics.
