The American Humane Association, the body responsible for ensuring the proper treatment of animals during film shoots in the United States, has made its findings at the end of an investigation: the dog that a video showed drowning would not have been abused during the filming.

Made public by the site TMZ in January, the video of a German Shepherd forced to go into a tumultuous water for the needs of a scene of My dog's lives had caused scandal. In this video, we could see the terrified animal, trying to struggle not to go into the water . But pushed by his trainer, the dog seemed to be drowning before being finally rescued by team members. Indignant by these images, the association Peta had also called for a boycott of this film.
