Universal Studios Hollywood's annual Grinchmas holiday celebration is all about helping shelter pups!
The role of "Max the Dog," the Grinch's sidekick has been cast, and the four dogs are Dusty, Dexter, Buster and Scrapper. These dogs had previously been abandoned by their owners and were living at shelters.
These four dogs were discovered by trainers who recognized qualities of playfulness, intelligence and, the look needed for the Grinchmas celebration.
Animal trainer John McCormick explained the situation, "the same 'hyper-energy' that may have led an owner to abandon their pet may make the animal well-suited to movie and TV work, and for a role in Universal's 'Grinchmas.'"
In addition to helping these pups out, Universal Studios will be hosting two adoption fairs. Max to the Rescue: Whoville's Have A Heart Pet Adoption Fairs will be held on December 11 and December 12 from noon to 4:00 p.m. in an area located near the theme park's main entrance.
This is wonderful! Will U check out Max the Dog at Grinchmas??
