Two young girls from an orphanage are adopted by a family in New York. The only problem is the apartment they move two doesn't allow dogs. The girls try to sneak a puppy the find into the home and keep it hidden. chestnut (a Great Dane) grows and grows while getting into more more and more trouble.
I watched this movie with my two toddlers (3.5 and 1.5 years). We all really enjoyed it. There's plenty of cute puppy action to keep the kids engaged, and the story (while predictable) was heartwarming.
The parents were very loving, the children sincere and sweet, and the "villains" weren't too scary. (It was nice to have a movie with some dramatic conflict without my toddler cringing because of scary music or scary people.)
I liked the elements of faith (it was subtle, not preachy), family loyalty, love, and forgiveness. People were willing to change, and many of the characters learned and grew and made changes in their lives. I found a lot of opportunities to talk with my kids about important life lessons throughout the movie. Two Mommy thumbs up!
