Abbey, the German Shepperd who played Sam in the movie “I Am Legend” is still alive, despite the film being released 10 years ago. The little dog is living with her trainer, Steve Berens, and his family.
“She’s older now and she doesn’t hear hardly anything. But she’s still kicking, she still likes a ball and likes a bone,” said her trainer.
“She was trained a lot of the basics that you need for film work, and then directly for those scenes. It was stressful at first, but she really came on good. She’s a good dog and she really learned fast.”
“When you work with a lot of actors, they’re not that interested in the animal. But Will Smith was not like that. He understood that Abbey was his co-star and he was a fabulous guy to work with”, Steve said. “I think she really liked him, and that made the difference,” he added.
When Will Smith was a child, he had a dog that was run over by a car. Then, he told himself that he didn’t want another pet, since he couldn’t go through so much suffering again. However, Will fell in love with Abbey on set.
Fortunately, Abbey is in good hands and is very happy alongside her family… Share this incredible story with your friends and family!
