11 Celebrity Canines


In the 1970s and 1980s, several feature films centered around the adventures and loving personality of Benji, a terrier with an uncanny ability to sniff out trouble just in the nick of time. Created by Joe Camp, the films were produced in Texas starting in 1974. The dog that played Benji in the original film was actually named Higgins. Other Benjis have come and gone over the course of nine feature-length films, the most recent released in 2004.
