The puppies used were rented from The Sodee's of Ashtabula, Ohio. They had the pups in the paper and were called about this movie. They nearly hung up thinking it was a prank call. All the pups were sold after the movie as "stars". See more »
When the janitor finds Annie with Katherine and leads the Springer Spaniel away, she has three legs (at around 1h 11 mins), but in the very next scene (at around 1h 11 mins) the janitor is leading a Springer Spaniel with four legs down the corridor, which would be Max, with no explanation of what he did with Annie nor how he captured Max.

I thought that this was a pleasant inoffensive film.Its about a boy who finds these dogs,who turn out to be special.Plenty of familiar faces from TV,like Kate Jackson,Wayne Rogers,Stacy Keach,and especially Rue McClanahan,who gives a very moving performance as a cancer victim who is changed by the dogs.In an age when even kids movies seem to be infected by crude humor,this is a refreshing change of pace.It is sweet,and I think its heart is definitely in the right place.It is typical made for TV level writing,but I thought the performances and the cute puppies make up for it.This is movie I would let my kids watch,and maybe even watch it with them.
