I think they are coming together for a common goal. I do hope this will make at least some of the people that saw the movie, that getting a dog because that breed did a Hollywood thing, would not be realistic. The dog in the movie "performed", a live dog is the REAL world.

I think that people should not buy a particular breed because they saw it in the movies. They should do research on the breed before buying that breed.

20th Century Fox should be commended on their pre-emptive actions to protect Labrador Retrievers
We raised Labs when I was growing up. They are a wonderful breed, perfect for families, but you must do research before adopting any pet.

Being Retrievers, they are "mouthy"- THEY CHEW EVERYTHING. Also this breed is high energy, and don't grow out of "puppyhood" for 2 to 3 years- once they do, they're worth their weight in gold. If you have to have a Lab- don't buy a pet shop dog- they're half the dog for twice the price. There are shelters & breed rescue groups that work hard to find loving homes for hundreds of unwanted dogs. Big plus... these dogs are family-ready; housebroken, fixed, vaccinated & micro-chipped.

That was the first thing I thought of when I noticed that since just before Marley & Me came out, there are labs in almost all the commercials using dogs. It's like they're exploiting the popularity they knew the movie would get---all at the dogs expense.

It's good to see there is as group educating people about the reality of owning a dog.So many people buy into the Hollywood idea that owning a dog is cute and that they are purse accessories.What they don't understand is that these animal actors are trained very,very well.So plainly put don't buy the pet if you don't have the time or money to invest into being a responsible owner.

This is such a good idea. Glad that they are being responsible with this movie after seeing what has happened in the past. It is so important, especially now with the foreclosures already leaving an over population of animals left in our shelters & humane societies. We have so many pets just being abandoned, that even the rescues & sanctuaries can't do enough. Please consider what you are doing when buying or adopting a pet. They are lifetime commitments that deserve the best care & love that we can give them.
