This hunky canine star is a medical alert dog and companion by day, and a movie star at night! Now, three years old and almost 90 lbs, his owner, Mikhaila Waldman, and her family, realized pretty quickly that Silas was so easy going and intelligent (not to mention, handsome!) that he had what it takes to be a star. He did so well at following commands and performing on cue that everyone deemed him a natural. He has since landed two film roles prior to “Bigfoot” and now has his own IMDB account!
A FAMILY AFFAIR
Silas - and his work - inspired his owner to study animals and public policy at Tufts’ Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Now, a graduate, Mikhaila has started an animal casting company with her mom, Jan Waldman, a film and commercial actress. Critter Casting is an agency specializing in placing animal actors in films that don’t have the benefit of a big budget.
Silas has recently welcomed a new sibling, a Malinois puppy who will be following in his footsteps as a movie actor. We can’t wait to see more from these two animal actors!
All dogs should be happy dogs
