Chile’s HERO DOG inspires documentary film

dogsilhoutte7January 15, 2009

Much attention has been paid recently to the video of the HERO DOG in Chile who risked his life to pull an injured dog off a busy highway. The video, captured by a surveillance camera, aired on TV and quickly proliferated the Internet. This lead to several offers of adoption but the hero dog still has not been found. A nine-month search ended as the video was released.

The incident has revealed a much greater problem of abuse in shelters and the 220,000 homeless street dogs in Santiago. The hero dog is the inspiration for a documentary about this issue.

Please consider supporting this project. I leave for Santiago on February 20, 2009. Donations received via Paypal will be available to me in Chile. 21st Paradigm is a non-profit film corporation – donations received in the US are tax deductible. To those who have already contributed, you have my deepest gratitude.
