A young boy and a talented stray dog with an amazing basketball playing ability become instant friends. Rebounding from his father's accidental death, 12-year-old Josh Framm moves with his family to the small town of Fernfield, Washington. The new kid in town, Josh has no friends and is too shy to try out for the school basketball team. Instead he prefers to practice alone on an abandoned court, he befriends a runaway golden retriever named Buddy. Josh is amazed when he realizes that Buddy loves basketball...that is playing basketball...and he is GOOD! Josh eventually makes the school team and Buddy is named the Team Mascot. Josh and Buddy become the stars of halftime. Buddy's half-time talent draws media attention. Unfortunately, when Buddy's mean former owner, Norm Snively, comes along with a scheme to cash in on the pup's celebrity, it looks like they are going to be separated. Written by
The moving truck that drove around Buddy's cage, on the highway, was carrying the Framm's items. It can be seen at the house that Jackie Framm drove to and moved, approximately four to six minutes after the movie started. See more »
When Snively is chasing Josh with his truck, the first part that flies out from under the truck after he crashes through the Fernfield sign is the driveshaft. As the preceding scene clearly shows this as a 2-wheel-drive truck, without the driveshaft it is impossible for the truck to accelerate under engine power. It could've possibly coasted faster given the slight downhill grade, but the truck is clearly shown accelerating out of control off the dock. See more »

Oh, darn it!
[dresses Buddy; of a newspaper]
Okay, mutt, show time! Okay, come here. Hold it. Hold it. Do not make me use this, Okay?
[rings doorbell; it opens]
Hi, Clown and the Hound!
Okay, kids, it's "Happy Slappy Time!" All right now, we'll start off with a little plate-spinnin', okay?

This is a good movie for younger kids despite some brief mild language. The dog playing basketball just doesn't make sense to me though. I could take the ball away from the dog and its not like he has the height advantage. If you have small kids they would enjoy it.
