Imposter dog?
Senia Phillips of Southern Animal Talent Agency says Scruffy, the black terrier mix dog in the Animal Control pound identified as being in the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie, wasn't a movie dog and wasn't dumped there by the movie people.
Senia said she only provided the basset hound for the role of Flash, obtained from a private owner in Atlanta who also worked as a trainer for the movie.
But, she says, "I have suffered from many a sleepless night and have often been in tears because of this rumor. There was never a black terrier mix dog named 'Scruffy' involved in the filming of 'Dukes of Hazzard.'

"I have worked a long 16 years to attain the reputation I have with the American Humane Association in Los Angeles for following any and all rules they have to protect animals in entertainment
"I can assure you that never has an animal I have acquired ended up in a shelter … ""
Janice...
Thanks for posting this! I'm really glad that someone took the time to go to the original source!
FWIW, there are a LOT of animal rights activists out there who want to stop all animal use in entertainment. They start rumors like this to discredit top animal trainers, and turn people against everything from film companies to the owners who supply the dogs.
I can imagine how horrified Ms. Phillips is. I, for one, would be proud to have my dog represented by her agency.
Regards,
Tracy

I don't know if you caught "Because of WinnDixie" but that dog had the most amazing face.
My dog, a Jack Russell, on the otherhand has ADD and would never be able to work in a movie ;-)

Yeah, for sure next time I get an email from a person who was appointed by the Governor to work on a state humane commission, I'll assume that they're lying . I consider the person to be very reputable, but didn't use their name without their permission. However, as you will see, there appeared to be pretty good reason for it to be sent.

Your article is in the Advocate. Here is an earlier article in the same newspaper:
http://www.2theadvocate.com/stories/080205/smi smiley001.shtml

"Sherri Montagnino says Scruffy, a black terrier mix who performed in the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie when it was shot here, has been adopted from the Animal Control Center.
"When she read about the acting dog in the Sunday paper, Sherri feared it might be killed if no one adopted it. So she started an e-mail campaign to help him find a home."
So, apparently there was a dog so advertised in the Advocate on 7/31/05. If it was at East Baton Rouge Parish Animal Control, and they were lying, they certainly deserve to be called on the carpet about it. I don't find anything in the archives. It would have been nice if the newspaper had checked this out more carefully before they printed it. Most of us don't have the time to research newspaper articles to make sure that they're printing the truth.
I tried to access EBRAC petfinder pages from that time period through Wayback and was unable to.

I rented it for my kids. Cute movie.

I didn't say that to be mean but yes, even those in high places get fooled by emails from supposedly reputable sources. Some emails have a semblance of truth in that yes, they could happen but in actuality the story they state never took place. Take for instance an email circulating my ISP that looks quite real with the exception that one line of it has very bad English. Most may not catch it and will be fooled into risking their credit information.
As to where I found the answer, yes that is where I got it after searching snopes.com which hasn't yet verified. As a dog lover I did find it hard to believe that they would get a dog from the pound only to return it. Dogs need lots of training to perform in movies properly.

Again, my applogies as I never meant to hurt you, only to report the turth in the rumor going around.
