Trivia

Holly was originally going to be a character in this movie as the pound owner. That idea was scrapped by the production crew because they didn't think an 11 year old girl running a puppy pound would be believable to movie-goers. So Tammy and Jeff were created. They thought young adults running the pound would be more believable. See more »

Goofs

When Tammy and Jeff are outside of the museum, talking about the adoption center, Tammy is first seen holding one black and white cat. In the next shot, she is holding a tan dog and a white dog. See more »

I loved this movie!
6 July 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie when I was a kid and still do. I have it on tape, recorded off TV, but one time I accidentally hit record while watching it screwing up the middle of the movie. I'm so sad. I wish I could find it on VHS or DVD. I would buy it in a heartbeat. I have enjoyed this movie many times during my childhood. It has great catchy songs that I would sing along to and the plot is simple but good. It's not just some silly pound puppy story. It's serious. It has a dramatic crime that is committed by comical bumbling fools that work for an awful awful man. The puppies, although unrealistic, can speak to humans and they can understand them, but when the crime is committed the communication is lost. Then some dogs turn mean by the doing of the evil man but evil can not triumph when love and friendship are involved. That's why this movie is a good kids movie, it's got love, friendship, morals, comedy, drama, and of course great songs!
