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

Odd, darkly humorous and unsettling tale of a dog, his thought process and his owners. Baxter senses their fear, their insecurities, as well as his own. How he acts or chooses to react, is unpredictable, and therein lies the entertaining side of this movie. Surely, this dog is not a lovable pooch, as his thoughts are downright wicked at times. Yet, sides of his tortured nature arise, bringing an emotional balance. Certainly, a very thought provoking movie, to say the least.
