Dear Dog, I Love You is a short romantic comedy filmed in Brooklyn about a guy who thinks his dog can talk, starring the up and coming dog actor, Paul Newman. Not to be confused with the late human actor, Paul Newman is an adorable Basset Hound with an under dog to wonder dog story. Just a few years ago, he was found in an abandoned garage by the Mid-Atlantic Basset Hound Rescue Group and matched with a wonderful trainer and caretaker.
The short is a passion project led by Columbia film student, Jed Cowley. He already shot the film and has created a kickstarter campaign to raise funds for post production. Cowley plans to share the film with shelters and the rescue community in hopes that some of the proceeds can help support the rescue process.
