Kevin Is the Dog Star of the Movie

Kevin is a very talented pup who is frequently featured in the movie. He was trained by Allstars K9 Training, according to an Instagram post by Busby.

Kevin’s very photogenic.

K9 wrote about Kevin: “Kevin, the one and only! We have been through so much together, and had so many adventures… Every day I am just grateful to have him in my life, it’s hard to believe we almost lost him a few years ago – before he was diagnosed with EPI. He has taught me so much, and when we go to work together he always gives me 110%. I feel like we can read each other’s minds sometimes 💕 📸 @luba_popovic thank you for the amazing photo!”

Here’s a photo of a training session with Kevin from November.

What a sweet dog!

Kevin has even delivered rings for a wedding. Allstars K9 wrote in July 2018: “Kevin did an amazing job delivering our rings on Saturday 😍 He didn’t even recognize me in my dress, but he ran to my voice like the most loyal friend a girl could ask for. GOOD BOY KEVIN! ❤️”

According to hashtags, Kevin is a blue heeler. Here’s a cute video of him from 2017.

In 2017, Kevin earned the CARO Rally Excellent title after qualifying in three excellent level rounds, and a High in Class placement.

Can’t get enough of those photos of Kevin:
