Films: The Breed (2006)
Height/Weight: That of average German Shepherds.
Summary: Remember all of those killer dog movies that ran rampant in the late 70s? Well, here comes a throwback to those interesting times. And this time, it's a rather exclusionary club going on here. Either go German Shepherd, or go home.
History: A pacific northwestern island is out there deprived of almost all humans for a reason. It was a government testing site where a pack of German Shepherds were genetically modified to be more perfect killing machines. Alas, the experiment was abandoned, and the dogs were let loose to run around the place. Occasionally, people come here to get away from it all, and once the dogs realize that, the dinner bell has been rung...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After killing most of the visitors, the dogs are led back into the main building on the island, which is then blown up with all of them in it. All but one of course, as the escape boat showed in the end. It probably got tossed overboard after revealing itself, so now the world doesn't have any more homicidal mutant dogs.
Powers/Abilities: These dogs are not only hyper-intelligent, but their bite can cause a person to gain heightened senses and more dog-like behavior. So...werewolves?
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-They're dogs. They're descended from wolves. If there's anything we've learned from past movies, it's that a pack of specialized predators is not to be trifled with. Especially if it contains ones that can infect you with a bizarre madness with a bite, if they don't maul you to death first.
Trivia: -All of the actors were given at least one week of dog training in order to prepare for this film.
-German Shepherds have a long history of being used as working dogs for the police and the military due to their impressive endurance and intelligence. One of the most popular animal actors was the one named Rin Tin Tin, who had a long line of successors.
