Except for a few basic commands, Ebbey does no tricks. Filmmaker Allex Michael just exploited her natural behaviors for the film 'Search Dog's Raven'. As you can see by this photo, Ebbey still has a naughty streak.

Finding a zealous sniffer, who looks good on camera, was the main casting requirement for the canine lead of Search Dog's Raven'. After seeing the film, you'll agree that Ebbey is the perfect choice. She even has a saggy throat and gray on her muzzle to portray an older canine.

Filming a sniffer like Ebbey for search scenes was like filming reality television. Find a good location and follow her around. Sometimes you can set up the camera in front of a trail so she sniffs towards the audience. Sometimes you try tracking along her side. Film her long enough and eventually you will get some great shots. Aside from deep snow and focusing on a fast moving dog, this part was easy. The tough part was planned reaction shots. When it comes to doing anything like work, Ebbey has the attention span of an aphid. Praise only goes so far and after a while, she just doesn't want another piece of steak. Because of this, solo dog scenes were filmed off and on from February 2004 to March 2006. Luckily Allex Michael had long term access to the indoor set, which allowed her to do a several solo Ebbey shots per day. This reiterates the old adage...'Never work with animals or children.' And if you do, hire a trained canine professional.

Ebbey has a lead role in the new film 'Search Dog's Raven'. One common complaint about films with dogs is that you don't see enough of the dog. Not only is Ebbey's screen time almost equal to the lead human actor, you'll want to watch her character closely to reveal the film's unique twist. Because the key to unlocking the story's eerie crime turns out to be the 'Search Dog's' Raven. Ebbey's Heritage
