Her daughter Florence gives Mrs. Deville bull-terrier Baxter as a surprise present. Although she's afraid of him, she doesn't want to give him away because she feels lonely. But Baxter has his own ideas - he longs to be dominated, to be challenged - and so he isn't content with his boring life with the old lady. To get rid of her, he causes an accident. It works, and he's given to the neighbors, a young couple. He's happy... for a while. When they get a baby, he again takes action. Written by

The story here has been done several times before and since this one was made, although arguably not in such a bizarre and intriguing way. The story concerns a bull terrier, Baxter, and his adventures with several different owners: an old lady, a young couple, and a disturbed nazi-obsessed boy. The dog offers commentary on the humans, and life for him in general, and is often thoughtful and at times quite humorous. Probably one of the best films of its type, but one that no one has seen...probably due to its somewhat disturbing subject matter, and the fact that it is a foreign film with subtitled French, however, I would strongly recommend this film as it is quite a viewing experience with several memorable moments and sequences.
