People involved with the movie fought back against the rumors and said there was no wrongdoing. Dennis Quaid, who stars in the movie, appeared on “Today” and defended the treatment of the dog in question:
“The dog was fine. This was a piece of video that was shot during the making of this. [by] Some unknown person at the time. He also spliced, edited and manipulated that to make it look as if the dog was being abused. The dog had been in that water happily, and even afterwards too.”
The dog definitely still looks terrified, but this video compared to the last does look differently in the way they treated the dog!
