Happy - West Highland White Terrier
cross featured on episodes of the
domestic drama 7th HEAVEN/WB/1996+.
"Anything You Want"
Simon Camden (David Gallagher) wanted a dog, so his
family went to the dog pound and found a perky
little shaggy white terrier that they named
Happy. When Happy was found in a pound, he
was going to be put-down in 24 hours until he
was rescued by the Camdens.
While trying to train Happy, Simon asked his
new dog to sit, lie down and roll over. When
Happy did all these things without a whimper,
Simon declares "He's a genius."
Shawn Weber, one of Happy's trainer on the show
said that when Happy was found in real-life, he
was sitting next to a sign that read: "My name
is Happy. Please take me home." Unlike many
terrier breeds whose behavior is hyper, Happy (a
mixed breed) is laid-back and easy to be with.
Before her stint on 7TH HEAVEN Happy was
wandering the street alone until she was taken
in by a veterinary clinic. One day, a trainer
from Boone's Animals for Hollywood discovered
the dog, named her Happy and the rest is TV
history. Another of Happy's trainers is Shawna
On filming days, Happy works about two or three
hours and because its is difficult to find a
exact mixed-breed look-alike for Happy, she does
all of her own stunts and tricks. A talent
canine, Happy has learned to wear clothes
(tutus, rain boots, hats), cover her eyes with
her paws, and shake her head on cue.
