It's my understanding that the original RTT in the movie was a sable. But then a few years later, someone decided to make a TV series which was quite popular. In the series, they used a B&T saddleback dog.

And I agree- I've not found much attractive about that line. Look like washed out pet dogs to me... (Says the guy with a washed out pet dog. Eh... I'd rather look at my own. That line just doesn't attract me.)

I think the one in your picture (Willy) was the third one?

The History of RIN TIN TIN

Quite the legend back in the day. Glad the family is keeping that legend alive.

Oh.... I stand corrected.

I also think it's cool that they're keeping the legend alive. But I think it'd be cooler if the entire line was legendary. Do they do anything other than exhibitions?

Actually Fido allegedly worked security.The movie I saw was the cast Wildo posted. I think Fido appeared in the new adventures of RinTin Tin 1980s early 90's.
The one Rinty described as grey sable reminds me of Daisy who as I was frequently told and kind of agreed was washed out when it came to color. I thought she more then made up for it in presence. I get the idea of perserving the line. On the link White Shepherd provided the narrative is an interesting read . OK I had a Rinty lunch box that was one of my older cousins when I was like 7 so for me the line is kind of cool.

This is such a fine example of chutzpah--they want me to pay over a thousand dollars plus airfare and hotel to see a dog several generations removed from a t.v. star dog? Really? Does anyone actually buy this? (There are 0 bids as of this posting).

Reminds me of the line from Chevy Chase's "Vegas Vacation": "Why don't you give me half the money your were gonna spend, then we'll go out back, I'll kick you in the n*ts, and we'll call it a day"

LOL! Completely agree. Actually, I thought the lineage documented on the website Whiteshepherds posted was pretty interesting, up until the death of Jannettia Brodsguard Propps. After that, the website stops talking about work accomplishments and starts mentioning appearance only. Post "Fido" (Rin Tin Tin VI) I'm not impressed. Look like normal pets to me...
