Three dogs of the Perro de Presa Canario, a.k.a. Canary Mastiff breed were used to play the role of De Niro. Their names were Curly, Ademar and Han Solo. Each of them had a different task. One more dog of the breed appears in the movie - a little puppy. It was given as a present to Yariv Lerner, CEO of Nu Boyana Film Studios, where the movie was shot. The puppy was named De Niro.

When the film shows the dog's view it includes the Near-sightedness but it lacks the red-green colorblindness that dogs would have (as they only see the primary colors of red, green and blue). See more »
Turns out that freshwater fish don't make it in the salt. Me, I'm a freshwater fish. I know I'm in the right tank.

Dont watch if u expect lots of action n creature mayhem. Solid character driven survival drama/thriller with enuff scenes of tension n suspense.
I am writing a review of this film again as my old review got deleted somehow n so this time i will make it a short review.
Saw this on a dvd. The trailer, the star cast n the plot were superb but most people will b disappointed cos its not an action oriented or fast paced creature flick. But i enjoyed it. There is too much talking between characters n if u pay attention each character has a story n each involves an animal that had an impact on their lives.
There r small scenes of solid tension/suspense n dog chase scenes. It is a small scale survival thriller with more emphasis on characters.
Most of the dogs aggressive nature is told off screen n there aint enuff body count.
The directors earlier effort Grace was a bit slow too. Has shades of Cujo n Reservoir dogs.
