Movie "The Firm" - what dog breed is it

Hi

In the movie "The Firm" (with Tom Cruise) there's a dog called "Hearsay" (Tom's dog). Can someone please identify for me what breed of dog this is?

Many thanks

I got the dog's name "Hearsay" from this web site list (a list of dogs in movies). I wish that list also listed the breed.

Aw, I should have thought of YouTube.

Yes, the dog around time stamp 0:44, although he's in a convertible on the highway and the wind is blowing his hair back. His hair normally falls down, kinda fluffy. Mostly white/gray.
We also barely see the dog around time stamp 0:32
