Meet Auckland pug Arnie who may be the next Kiwi to crack the acting big time

A West Auckland pug named Arnie Robertson is making a name for himself as the most prized pug in showbiz. 

Seven Sharp found film star Arnie is living the high life. He's got four beds, eats like a king and even has his own little car.

It's all paid for by his stellar acting career in TV ads.

His owners said because he's a big dog they named him after Arnold Schwarzenegger so it's kind of funny he's ended up going into movies. 

Arnie's a humble dog, unless he sees himself on telly, and then he barks.

And Arnie's about to go barking mad when he sees himself in his latest project, on the big screen. 

He's the star of Repugnant, a short film featuring in the Show Me Shorts' film festival.

Check out Tamati Rimene-Sproat's interview with Arnie and his owners, and some of his on-screen performances in the video above.
