    Parvo is a terrible, swift and highly contagious illness. Play nicely at the Rainbow Bridge, puupies.

    I knew this would pop up, but in fact Disney is NOT to blame. It was the BREEDER, who lied about the puppies.

    I know some people who had Goldens in this movie, and this is what we were told:

    I just got the explanation of what happened to the pups from the lady
    who owns the Saint in the movie. The supplier for the pups did not have
    enough pups the right age so shipped 4 and 5 week old pups with no shots
    to the movie set. He lied on his shipping paperwork. The babies got ill
    quickly and some did die but the movie crew got good vet care for all of
    them and many survived. The movie was delayed while the ASPCA
    investigated the deaths. The movie folks were smacked for accepting the
    underage pups but the movie was released as they were cleared of any
    invovement in the pups being ill. All the pups have since had health
    clearances and are in good homes.

    They should stick with animated movies from now on.

    Nobody is actually looking after the welfare of these puppies. Everyone
    seems to just want the money.

    I agree... it's all about making money!
    The breeder didn't have puppies the correct age, so they lied and sent younger ones to fill in... because if they wouldn't have, they probaly wouldn't have gotten the money.

    How sad... RIP sweet puppies.

    Yes & it was this statement that lead me to conclude that the one breeder
    lied about their ages & shipped 5wk old puppies for work in this film. It seemed
    to me that nobody was in charge & checked all the facts before filming.


    "To continue filming the movie, Snow Buddies hired 28 older replacement golden retrievers after the first 30 were removed for treatment. Unfortunately, this second group has been exposed to parvovirus.

    American Humane learned recently that one litter of the older puppies used after the first became sick was vaccinated for parvovirus at the Canadian border by a veterinarian contacted by the puppies’ trainer, and the first sign of the parvo was from that same litter. We have also learned that, unbeknownst to the production, the filming location in the lower mainland of Vancouver has witnessed an outbreak of parvo dating back as far as six months before production began. In this case, the puppies from Washington State were removed from their mother (breeder) too early and vaccinated. The vaccine takes two weeks before it is effective. Sometimes when puppies are vaccinated early there is still a risk of infection. High levels of maternal antibodies present in a puppy’s bloodstream will block the effectiveness of a vaccine. Despite being vaccinated, puppies can still contract parvovirus because the window of susceptibility can be several days to a couple of weeks. "

    Wow. That is HORRIBLE.

    When I saw commercials for this movie... I thought it looked unsafe and stupid, as it was. Small puppies pulling a sled? Uhhh, is that safe?

    Yeah I have to agree. Especially, golden retrievers who aren't even bred for that. Even if it were huskies, I wouldn't approve anyway.

    I agree with Lizbud, no one was looking out for the pups, just their wallets. Disney gets a share of the blame along with the breeders and trainers.

    I'll never go see it. And yes, Disney SHOULD take part of the blame, and stick to animation. UGH!!!! Those poor dogs.

    I heard about this on one of the siberian sites I go to. So unfortunate that those poor pups are paying the price for human stupidity & greed. Using puppies so young is no way to teach responsible pet ownership to Disney's young audience. Every time they make a movie with real dogs, it causes a huge explosion in demand for that breed, ending in a huge explosion of unwanted young dogs in shelters & rescues a few months later, when they aren't so "cute". Disney should stick to animation & selling stuffed animals. Maybe that way "no animals were harmed while making this film" will be a truthful statement.
