Dogs. They are more than just pets for many; they are our best friends. Dogs have a way of bringing joy into our lives and becoming integral members of our families. “Dogs improve people’s lives in so many ways,” explains Micaela de la Maza, the creator of ‘Sr. Perro,’ the go-to guide for urban animal lovers, who reflects on the mistreatment and abandonment of these incredible beings.
To honor the special bond between humans and dogs, we celebrate International Dog Day on Wednesday, July 21. It’s a day for humans and dogs to spend quality time together. In celebration, we want to share with you some of the best dog-themed titles available on Netflix.
Boy and Joel in ‘Love and Monsters’
Joel’s world is turned upside down when monsters cause an apocalypse. He embarks on a journey to find his high school crush, who lives a hundred kilometers away. He won’t be alone, though, as Boy, a street-smart dog who has learned to survive on his own, accompanies him every step of the way, becoming inseparable friends.
Oveja and Hector in ‘Seventeen’
Hector, a seventeen-year-old boy, finds himself in a juvenile center where he encounters Oveja, a shy and distant dog. After adopting Oveja, Hector escapes the center with his older brother, grandmother Cuca, two dogs, a cow, and other animals. This heartwarming story has a happy ending, as all the dogs featured in the movie were adopted from shelters. In fact, Biel Montoro, the actor who portrays Hector, adopted Oveja and they became best friends. It’s worth mentioning that Netflix created a canine version of one scene in the movie, using sound waves and color palettes tailored for canine vision and hearing.
