Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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.

Great idea, great acting, could have been great film
10 August 2007 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This film has a great idea and some terrific actors like Kate Jackson, Wayne Rogers, Rue McClanahan, Stacey Keach, and newcomer Josh Hutcherson (who has since starred in Little Manhattan, Bridge To Terabithia, and several others). The idea is about a boy who has to give away some puppies, and in the meantime when the puppies (or their mother) visit hospital patients, the patients miraculously get better. The reason I only give it 8 stars is that the film doesn't stay focused on that idea and follow individual stories for each puppy & patient, but gets sidetracked with other characters like a doctor (Wayne Rogers) who has little to do with the main story, a janitor (Stacy Keach), and a dog catcher. These characters and their stories are fine in their own rite & well acted, but they take time away from the main theme which could have been developed more and made this a great 10-star film.
