In 2005 I was notified, that Classic Media doing a nationwide search for a collie that could play Lassie in the remake of "Lassie Come Home"
Mason was purchased by my good friend Denise Schroeder when he was 8wks old, and I encourage Denise to send pictures of him to Hollywood. (Northern Classic Collies).
The film production company saw the picture of Mason and contacted Denise to come and see him .They will thrilled by his appearance and especially his character.
Mason was to be their star in the movie.. Along with Dakota & Carter (from Texas) to play the stunt dogs. Mason was flown to Los Angeles to train for 3 months and the cast was flown to Ireland, for 4 months. All the collies were trained by Mathilde De Cagny. The movie was a big success and Mason was the star, playing at least 80% of the movie.
Mason will always be our star in our small town and has appeared in many nursing homes, and schools with his wonderful personality.. I am am very proud to say I was the breeder of such a fine dog.
