TERRY THE ACTRESS

"Toto" from the Wizard of Oz was played by a female Cairn Terrier named Terry. She was adopted in 1933 when she was a year old by a man named Carl Spitz (who ran the Hollywood Dog Training School). Terry was paid $125.00 a week for the filming of the Wizard of Oz, which was actually more than what the Munchkin actors were paid! After a successful career and appearing in several other films, Terry passed away in 1945 at the age of thirteen. (Information from Eddie Deezen via neatorama.com)
