Movie: 'A Dog's Purpose' is under fire for a leaked video of them forcing a dog into rough waters has gone viral.
Since the video has been released, the film's producers have spoken to TMZ stating:
"On the day of the shoot, Hercules [The German Shepard] did not want to perform the stunt portrayed on the tape so the Amblin production team did not proceed with filming that shot.
The movie is a celebration of the special connection between humans and their dogs. And in the spirit of this relationship, the Amblin production team followed rigorous protocols to foster an ethical and safe environment for the animals."
There is a full investigation of the matter underway, but the german shepherd is 'healthy and happy'
