When Rene leads Big Red to run into Haggin and Emile for the first time, he had tied his belt around the dog for a collar and leash.

Modest live-action Disney film for the family
11 July 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Orphaned young man finds work on the ranch of a stern dog-owner, becomes attached to a mutt who might have dog-show potential. Walter Pigeon(looking a little bit like Walt Disney himself!)ambles around quite nicely as the dog-owner with the face of stone and the heart of gold. The kid is inoffensive, although the music goes out of it's way to jerk your heartstrings. The settings have that artificial look commonplace to studio-films of this era, but in Disney's case the rural atmosphere is always captured with a nostalgic feel. It is almost unbearably wholesome, but I had a pleasant time watching it. ** out of ****
