Dennis Quaid Speaks Out Following 'A Dog's Purpose' Controversy

Dennis Quaid is coming to the defense of the cast and crew of his upcoming film A Dog’s Purpose amid animal abuse accusations.

The 62-year-old actor explained that he does not believe there was any harm done to the animals on set.

“I was there. I never saw any abuse of any animal. If there had been, I would have walked,” Dennis told ET.

He added, “My experience is that the animals were treated great. There was no animal abuse. That video that someone took and sold for money and held on to for a year and a half until right before the film’s coming out, does not tell the whole story. First of all, it’s been edited and manipulated. And I think it’s a scam, to tell you the truth.”

Dennis concluded, “That was towards the end of the day and I would not say, in real context, that the dog was frightened. The dog was acting like a dog who was kind of tired of taking a bath and was ready to get out. And, in fact, that’s what happened. They took the dog out.”
