When it comes to animal actors, they are always the ones that tug on our heartstrings and leave us in a desperate hope that they will survive. When it comes to ‘man’s best friend’ though, we tend to be especially sensitive with sad scenes. There are many films that feature our favourite beloved pets, and these can either be our most favourite films, or they could be films that you would want to avoid altogether. If you are desperate to get your own dog and treat it to some Designer Dog Collars and leashes, there are many companies who sell Designer Collars for Dogs that are comfortable and sturdy. Here are the top 4 Dog Films.
Marley and Me
This film focuses on the Grogan family who buys a Golden Labrador Retriever Puppy, Marley. When they bring Marley home, they begin to discover that he is very unruly and boisterous. They give him the label of worlds worst dog, but continue to love him nonetheless. This film is based on a book written by John Grogan who is a journalist. Later on in the film, Marley suffers from an Intestinal Disorder which makes him poorly, and because he is an old dog, it is too risky to carry out the surgery. Before Marley is put to sleep, John talks kindly to Marley and says that he is the best dog who has continued to love them every day – this film certainly tugged on peoples heartstrings.
Homeward Bound is a film about two dogs and a cat (Shadow, Chance, and Sassy) who believe they are being abandoned by their owners after they get dropped off at a ranch, as the owners needed to temporarily relocate.

They decide to call him Beethoven as he begins to bark when they play a Ludwig Van Beethoven song on the piano. The family begin to form a strong bond with Beethoven, so much the father begins to feel left out and jealous of their affections towards the dog.
