Although Columbia production credits for this unviewed film list Henry Kokojan as "creator," Kokojan typically worked as a director of photography, camera operator and still photographer. According to a November 1960 Hollywood Reporter news item, the film's production company, McLendon Radio Pictures Corp., operated six radio stations in Texas. My Dog, Buddy was the company's third and last production. According to the Variety review, the film was such a hit in the Southwest that Columbia decided to distribute it nationally. A May 1960 Los Angeles Times news item notes that McLendon was considering a sequel, to be called Tuffy Scott's Dog. That film, however, was never made.
