Breeding foxes for fur. P.C. police beware!
25 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another Rin Tin Tin Jr. action/thriller about the theft of valuable foxes raised on a farm for their coats and part of a ring for stolen furs. There is no doubt in my mind that these adorable members of the canine family would end up around some rich woman's shoulders. Rin is their bodyguard, at one point carrying a few in his mouth to prevent them from being stolen. The plot is more about capturing the crooks rather than saving these cute animals, and my feeling of anti-fur trading took a great increase. But this movie is still irresistible, especially when Rin babysits some infant white bunny rabbits.

Once again, Rin is more believable, or at least a bigger scene-stealer than the human actors, here lead by Dennis Moore with Luana Anderson as the female lead. The foxes, too, are equally fascinating to watch, with them running around and playing, squawking like chipmunks at the ever watchful Rin, and providing a look into the life of a basically shy, retreating animal that nature documentary lovers rarely get to film. The moments of Rin on his own are long with little dialog for minutes at a time. This makes the film more interesting and frustrating because of the mystery of why these foxes are being bred on farms in the first place.
