Mukhtar to Kiev.
In the third season, the shooting took place in Kiev.Main shaggy hero had to look local.They became the champion, medalist and winner of prestigious exhibitions nicknamed Zeiss.True, he was older than his predecessors almost doubled, but more experienced.Just a few days Zeiss learned off the alarm and hide your mobile phone.There were two stand-dog - the sons of Zeus and the West, who performed for the pope power tricks.Like a true star, Zeiss relied separate lounge.Find out who among ordinary dogs on working conditions cinematic Mukhtarov, howled would envy.During the break, the artists tried not to disturb the caudate colleague, though, according to the trainer, succeeded with difficulty."Actors loved Zeiss so that tear them away from the dog was almost impossible.Moreover, they kept him fed, - says Alexander.- So the biggest challenge has been to train a filming crew to Zeiss has not turned into a thick bumpkin. "
When Zeiss old, he began to look for a replacement: after all, jumps and grabs require special physical training.As a result, the third dog Mukhtar became award-winning, world vice-champion status with a suitable name Wachs background Vaysrusland Kirshental, which became a platform for Vasya.Despite the apparent similarities (both dog - excellent representatives of the breed of German shepherd dogs), the characters they were completely different.Zeiss was a strict silent dog, to yourself is not allowed to approach each one.Vaska, on the contrary, very affectionate and sociable, moreover, remembers director Vladimir Zlatoust, "terrible Lizun": while all not lick, do not say hello, work will not start.

In casting Yaks fought with five other "Germans", but lively character and smart look of the future actor won the heart of demanding director, and took the dog to the show.During this time, Kuzma learned some useful things and not so.I began to beg food, sing, interrupted the conversation by barking, and even respond to serial nickname fly.
Yaks But the real test was when seriously ill.After all, in an artistic environment, to cancel shooting Missed even sickness actor.But despite the disastrous state of health, Kuzma admirably played in one of the episodes.In the story, the boys arrested the wrong man, and desperately barking Fly to rely on a detainee and beat feet on the handcuffs.Weakened by illness Yaks simply physically unable to perform such action as a violent beating of paws on the handcuffs.Instead, he just poke his nose into the hands of the detainee, and it looked much more natural and lifelike.
