Pets Portrayed in Films?


From increased demand for particular animals like dalmatians or collies (that may later end up in shelters) to movies where particular breeds are portrayed to be exceptionally violent (Cujo, No Country For Old Men) and damaging their reputation, pets in flicks is a tricky sitch. On one hand, I can't imagine a movie with a killer Boston Terrier would make me fear North, but on the other I still flinch at swarms of birds. What do you think about the portrayal of animals in film — is the scene stealing worth the misconceptions?
