Will Smith tried to adopt the dog in I Am Legend

Will Smith’s film, ‘I Am Legend’, has one of the saddest and most iconic animal deaths of all time. Smith, playing one of the last surviving humans on Earth in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, has a dog named Sunny, who is his only friend. The German Shephard was given to him by his son moments before the helicopter his son and wife were in burst into flames. Smith became so attached to the dog actor that he actually tried to adopt it after filming was done.
