Mentioned in the behind the scenes special features, Emma Roberts tripped and fell while shooting the escape from the shelter. As a result, she was run over and trampled by the dogs, but was unhurt. She apparently had paw prints all over her. See more »

If you look at it, dogs have three basic needs. That's- that's eatting, sleeping, peeing and pooping.
No, I think peeing and pooping is one.
Uh, I've stepped in both and I have to disagree.

The credits are accompanied by clips and stills of the cast and crew with their pets (mostly dogs, but at least one cat and a snake). See more »
A brother and sister live with their umpteenth set of foster parents. They hide their pet - a small dog - because the foster parents don't want to know about it. When the dog runs away they follow it and find their way into an old abandoned building. To their surprise it is not completely abandoned but actually lived in by a number of dogs. Soon after that an idea comes to life.
And from there the story rolls on in a typical Disney style children's film where evil is evil and good is good and anything else is easily forgotten. As as adult I wasn't overly impressed with the film but the kid I took to see it loved it - and that's good. The target audience for the film must be kids in the age range 6 to 12 or so. The things that happen are fun to watch (at least the very most of the time) and although the acting capabilities of the younger players leaves something to be desired it is not bad enough to turn the film into a complete waste of tape.
All in all, it features a good number of laughs, a few tear drops and surely a lot of hard work - and a cast that is clearly liking to play the roles they were cast for.
