There is no reason to bring up the real life dog subject dying. The movie does not bring this up at all. The movie however goes to great lengths to trigger you with dog whining/moaning/crying/wheezing, bleeding, starving, limping, having labored breathing etc. He is taken to a vet and they discuss in detail fighting/abuse injuries, infections, infestations, internal injuries, dental damage, pain, and needing to be put down. They show the syringe, they dwell. They have the dog go through panic attacks when trying to be lead inside a building due to past abuse, then again when he needs to be kenneled under a plane for 6 hours (on the verge of cardiac arrest due to the stress)

I cannot stress this enough - just because it's not Marley and Me doesn't mean this is a feel good movie like Beethoven. Avoid at all costs.

No animals die in this movie at all. None. Zero. This should be 100% NO answers. People are definitely trolling this page if they put YES as an answer in any of the animal categories.

There is no dog fighting in this movie. No organized fighting or street fighting. Two angry stray dogs chase Arthur, but he escapes unharmed. It is the only scene to show angry dogs.

The dog is almost left behind and begins crying. The dog is very hurt during the movie but very brave about it.

SPOILERS: No pets die during this movie. Arthur, the real life dog who inspired the movie, died 6 years after the events in the movie, due to a malignant tumor. This isn’t mentioned anywhere in the movie. Real life Arthur died just before the movie started filming.

Nothing happens to human teeth. A veterinarian mentions that a dog’s teeth are so rotten, he is probably in pain when attempting to eat. We are not shown the teeth.

It was a very happy ending. It is a moving, wonderful story. Yes, dog and humans go through immense, tear-worthy trials and tribulations, but the movie finishes with plenty of petting, tail-wagging, and happiness for the dog and his people. You even get to see photos of the real Arthur during the credits, looking regal and happy. If you love dogs, I promise you will love this movie. I am extremely sensitive to animal cruelty in film (in story and on set), and this one did a fantastic job with the on-screen story, while keeping the dog actor obviously safe from harm.

The dog is bleeding constantly throughout the entire movie, and you get a look at the wound in a medical scene near the end. Additionally, you see a close up of one of the racers pulling skin off of a wound on her heel about halfway through.
