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.

Love Dogs or Not, You'll Love this Movie
31 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A beautiful TV movie about a litter of dogs with mysterious healing powers. Great to watch with the kids, and as an owner of my own three legged dog, I had a special love for Annie, this movie's mom-dog.

Although the plot is somewhat sublime and predictable, the cast selected for this film adds a special dimension to the experience. Kate Jackson and Wayne Rodgers seem to be aging well. Stacey Keach shows versatility as C.W., especially for those that remember him from the Cheech and Chong era.

The training of the dogs in this movie is far from ambitious, but apart from looking cute, running down halls and licking faces, these animals of course are the key to a most endearing movie. Want to see great animal training? See Eight Below for that! But all in all, a wonderful movie with a second look at Rue McClanahan of The Golden Girls genre who makes you wish there were more people like her in the world.

Spend an evening with the kids and see this wonderful film.....
