Looking for an inspiring pet movie that doesn’t anthropomorphize animals?
Here is CiaoCiao PetCare’s latest movie pick.
Megan Leavey (2017, Rated PG-13 for violence and strong language, happy ending). Traditionally, pet relationships are predicated on the reality that dependency is a one-way street: the pets are dependent on their owners but their owners are not on them. For military dogs and their handlers, however, that dependency goes both directions with dogs saving countless lives through their bomb sniffing skills, as well as protecting them from the enemy. The bonds that develop between handlers and their canines are thus among the strongest known animal-human bonds. Based on a true story of a soldier of the same name, Megan Leavey beautifully chronicles the development of such a bond between soldier and dog from basic training to their deployment in Iraq to her retirement from the Marines and her subsequent efforts to adopt her dog Rex.
