Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

You have to go home and hug your dog after seeing it.
9 November 2003 | by (Livermore CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is for people who share their lives and home with there puppy-people. Those who do not like dogs, or those who think dogs are "just pets" need not bother as they would not understand it. This movie held all warmth and love that a dog could possibly share with it's person.

I have seen it three times and I have gone home and hugged my dogs each time. As soon as it comes out on video I am going to get it so we can watch it together.
