ImagePicture show a dog who plays Shadow in the new film, 'Eight Below'. Troica is an Alaskan malamute who plays the role of Shadow in the film.Tim Adams art the Young-Williams Animal Center in Knoxville remembers when Troica was brought in to the shelter. Adams describes him then as "pretty hungry, pretty skinny and in pretty rough shape". Hollywood dog trainer Mike Alexander came to Tennessee on a casting call and spotted Troica. Adams says the trainer was looking for a dog that would pay attention to him and be responsive to commands. Troica fit the bill. There's another Tennessee dog involved, too. A female named Nikki was saved from a Chattanooga puppy mill and is stand-in for "Eight Below". Both dogs are now living with Alexander and auditioning for other movie roles.
