“I tried to buy the dog from the trainer,” Wahlberg said. “I offered her a lot of money. But she wouldn’t sell him. I just loved him so much.”

Wahlberg has four kids, and they also wanted him to bring the dog home. “But I understood why we couldn’t,” he said. “I had to try, though.”

He said working with Ukai was amazing and made many happy memories.

“We had a lot of great moments,” Wahlberg said. “My favorite was when we started the big race in the movie. That was exciting. Working with Ukai in those scenes was really powerful.”
