Dog Saved From Euthanization for Role on Broadway. abc NEWS
Just hours away from being euthanized, a two-year-old mutt in Houston got her big break when an animal trainer recognized her star quality. Sunny, a terrier mix, was quickly adopted and flown to New York City to try out for the role of “Sandy” in the new Broadway production of Annie.
“Something about her picture appealed to me,” William Berloni, the animal trainer in charge of casting the role told ABC News.
A world away from her previous hard-knock shelter life, Sunny now lives with Berloni and 22 other showbiz dogs on a 90-acrea estate in central Connecticut.
