Wizard of Oz Toto Is A Cairn Terrier

In the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz Toto was played by a female brindle cairn terrier whose real name was Terry. She was paid a $125 salary each week, which was far more than many of the human actors..

During the production of the Wizard of Oz Toto’s foot was broken when one of the Winkie guards accidentally stepped on it. A second cairn terrier had to be used while she healed.
