Tiger Was Run Over By A Car During Filming And Replaced With An Untrained Rescue
The tiniest Brady was tragically killed and replaced with an untrained look-alike. The real Tiger, the family dog, got hit by a car in the middle of filming during the first season. Not knowing what to do, the dog’s grieving trainer stopped by a pound on the way to set and picked up a look-alike.
The untrained rescue didn’t follow directions, and eventually producers nailed his collar to the ground to keep him in place, and then ditched the idea of a dog unless it was essential to the plot. Tiger’s doghouse is a set staple, even if the pup only appears in select episodes.
