Kuma von Clifford, the amazing acting dog
If we talk about celebrity dogs, of course, Kuma von Clifford features the list. This amazing Aussie/Husky mix dog has been featured in a large number of commercials, TV shows, movies, and infomercials. This dog trained skills are so amazing that film directors get pretty impressed with what they see.
Rescued from a shelter
Kuma, as he is best known, was a rescued dog by his owner, Sarah Clifford, from a shelter when he was a puppy. Sarah first saw Kuma on an online picture and it was love at first sight.
“I was online and saw a photo of a very cute puppy chewing a toy, whose sad brown eyes pierced into the camera lens (and into my heart) asking me to take him home,” Sarah tells.
That same weekend, Sarah drove to the dog shelter in South Carolina to meet what she calls her “dog soulmate“. Kuma was at about 9 weeks old and having a rough time.
It is without a doubt that adopting Kuma, was a life-changing decision for Sarah.

Fans dearly remember him for his role as Stan in the first five episodes of Disney’s TV show Dog with a Blog (2012). Sarah pulled out Kuma from the show as she considered that the job was too demanding for his age, in order to avoid future diseases.
