We have been reading several lately controversy related to dubbing, with actors who apologize for having lent their voices to characters of different ethnic groups, to controversies related precisely to those who should dub certain characters based on their nationality.
Probably Microsoft wanted to avoid any problems from the beginning, and therefore a dog inside Halo Infinite Sara voiced by a real dog, a pug called Buddy.

Meet Buddy the pug 🐶🔊 Buddy, the best friend of a Program Manager here at 343, adventured to the recording booth for our final #SoundDesignSaturday post. His time spent with the 343 Audio Team was filled with snacks, drinks, and plenty of pets. We hope you've enjoyed a look behind-the-scenes with our Audio Team over the past year. We can't wait for you to see, and hear, more about Halo Infinite in the coming months ✌️ #halo #xbox # 343industries #haloinfinite #masterchief #sounddesign #fieldrecording #pug #pugs #pugsofinstagram
343 Industries has registered different verses of the cute little dog while eating, to then reuse these sounds in the title expected for 2020.
Now there is only one hope: that the verses recorded by the pug are used to dub a pug and not another breed of dog in the video game, otherwise we will find ourselves back and forth.
