Owen Baker is a 12-year-old loner who has been working as a neighborhood dog-walker so he can earn the privilege of getting a dog of his own. His hard work pays off when his parents let him adopt a scruffy mutt he names Hubble. Both boy and dog get more than they bargained for when Owen wakes up one morning to discover he can understand every word Hubble says, including the ominous phrase: "Take me to your leaders." Owen learns that dogs came to Earth thousands of years ago to colonize and dominate the planet. Hubble (who is really named Canid 3942) has been sent by the powerful Greater Dane on a mission from the Dog Star Sirius to make sure dogs have fulfilled this destiny. Despite the best efforts of Owen's rag-tag group of neighborhood dogs to convince him otherwise, Hubble soon discovers the awful truth about Earth dogs: "You're all pets!" Now Owen (a boy who never had a friend) and Hubble (a dog who never needed one) must work together to prepare the neighborhood dogs for a visit... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Did You Know?


Liam Aiken was given his own Italian greyhound puppy (which he named Kes) as a gift for working on the film. It was to be presented on his last day of filming, but was withheld until the end of the day as his saddest scene was to be filmed on that day and the crew didn't want him to be happy. See more »


Who built the dogs' spaceships? They can't have done it themselves, not having opposable thumbs. See more »


Owen: So, when that retriever you talked about comes for you, you're planning on going back with them?
Hubble: [a little guiltily] Well, this is only a temporary mission.
Owen: Right. I get it.
Hubble: I appreciate your hosting me for the time being, but...
Owen: It's okay.
[Sadly, more to himself than to Hubble]
Owen: I'm used to temporary missions.

I actually liked this movie!
8 February 2005 | by (Seoul, S. Korea) – See all my reviews

I actually liked this movie. When I first read this page, I thought that this was just some lame movie which could only be found at the very back row of a video store. When I happened to catch this movie on TV by accident, I found that this movie was actually really touching. Okay, the acting could definitely need some improving, but the dogs were cute, the story charming, and there were some witty lines now and then. And, anyway, if I wanted to catch good acting, I would have went for something like "Closer" or "Girl, Interrupted". If you want a nice charming movie with cute dogs, check this out! Overall, a nice family movie!
