SYLVESTER STALLONE: YOU CAN TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS!
The fact that Rocky Balboa was a success, despite the maturity of the leading man, has opened more doors than one. Sylvester Stallone is proceeding with his Rambo movie and older dogs in Philadelphia once deemed undesirable, are being adopted! Rocky rescued an old unwanted dog from the pound he named Punchy in the movie, and the loyal dog ran along with him on his workouts. Apparently Punchy made such a good impression that Philadelphia pounds are reporting that adoption of older dogs has gone up 60 % and they credit the movie.
