Just how much was a dog paid to "act" on set? More than the Munchkins! Terry raked in $125/week, grossing more than most Americans made at the time.


In addition to Terry's role in "The Wizard of Oz," she played bow-wow Rags alongside Shirley Temple in the 1934 feature "Bright Eyes." Terry also starred in "The Women" and "Tortilla Flat" where she reprised her on-stage chemistry with Frank Morgan, the actor who played the Wizard in "Oz." She appeared in 16 films total.


Terry lived to be 11 years old. She remains one of the most popular dog actresses in film history.
