We were left wondering why the lead dog Buck isn’t a sleek husky while seeing the dog-centric action-adventure “The Call of the Wild,” which opens in theatres this Friday.
Buck has been portrayed on movie as a husky (in the 2009 “Call of the Wild” 3D film) and a Malamute/wolf hybrid (in the 2011 “Gold Rush” film) (in the 2000 TV series).

We Questioned the New John Thornton, Harrison Ford.
In his unique style, Harrison Ford declares, “Buck is not a husky.” He explains that Terry Notary, who played Buck through motion capture, is a perfect fit for the breed described in Jack London’s story. Due to the remote location of the Klondike gold fields, the prospectors relied heavily on strong, trainable dogs.
In The Call of the Wild, Audiences are Curious About the Dog’s Breed (2020).
People who have read The Call of the Wild have probably wondered what kind of dog the main character is.
Have you ever been watching a movie and thought, “Wow, I really need that dog!
Whether it’s Marley & Me or I Am Legend, there are some movies you need to see.
The Call of the Wild is the Most Recent Film to Win Over Audiences and Dog Lovers.
This thrilling adventure film, based on Jack London’s famous story of the same name, is directed by Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon), and features the talents of Harrison Ford (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Karen Gillan (Jumanji: The Next Level), and others.
The audience’s attention is still on the dog, despite the presence of a well-known actor.
When reading The Call of the Wild, keep in mind that the dog is a St. Bernard/Scotch Collie mix.
The plot follows a character named Buck after he is kidnapped from his Santa Clara, California, house and sent to Yukon.
Sanders found it “fascinating to see how [Jim] could trim a scene down to the bare bones and keep it going.” We reshot the new opening at Universal, and I had Thornton and Buck sit on the roof of Buck’s cabin to watch the stars (if I were Harrison, I’d do the same thing), and we also had Thornton follow Buck and catch sight of him with the wolves. I proposed this since I was tired of Thornton being inside the cabin all the time. It was a letter I wrote to Jim, and he responded favourably. His teachings were invaluable to me. He is honest about what he sees but also gets what we’re trying to accomplish.
Jack London’s The Call of the Wild had a St. Bernard/Scottish terrier hybrid named Buck. His mother was a shepherd, and his father was a huge St. Bernard named Elmo. Even while Buck wasn’t quite as massive as his dad, he still tipped the scales at over 140 pounds. Buck was formerly owned by a judge and his family and was a beloved family pet until he was stolen by a gambling gardener and sold.
This is how Buck came to be in the Arctic during the gold rush. No longer would he be spending his days in the warm Santa Clara valley. Buck’s breed served him well because he shared characteristics with both the St. Bernard and the shepherd, including a thick, hairy coat and a high IQ. Though he probably wouldn’t have choose this life for himself, he adjusted well and eventually became a respected leader among canines, wolves, and even humans.
