Russian bear dog named after Stanley Kramer will be named after the director, the Russian news agency Interfax reported on Sunday.
The new bear will be trained by a veterinarian in the Siberian city of Ufa, where the Stanley Kramer Foundation is based, and will undergo a full course of medical tests and vaccinations, according to the agency.
Kramer was born in the Soviet Union in 1930 and studied medicine in the United States and Europe.
The first dog to be named for him, the Minskie, was adopted in 2014.
The name is a homage to Kramer’s mother and to a photograph in which Kramer was sitting with his wife in a small cubicle.
