Featured Animal Action
The animal action is very mild in Scream 3 where the danger seems to be directed at the human characters. The third installment shows Sidney in several scenes accompanied by her pet dog, Cherokee. Two Golden Retrievers named Cosmos and Solar were used to play Cherokee. Trainers cued the dogs to go with the actress, lay down, play ball and drink from a water bowl.
In one scene, Sidney is at home with Cherokee when a window shatters. The scene was shot in cuts and the dog was not present when the window breaking was filmed.
