Storyline

At the North Pole, Father Christmas and his chief dog Santa Paws worry as the whole toys processing system is threatened by the weakening of its magical power source, the icicle drawing on Christmas spirit. When harshly rebuked Puppy Paws, wishing there was no Christmas and he a regular dog, runs away to Fernfield and joins the 5 Buddies siblings, power falls beneath minimum. Chief Elf Eli finds his trace and travels in an attempt to save his and the world's Christmas spirit, but the six puppies face misunderstandings and the grim dog catcher Stan Cruge.

Disney discovers The Great Pyrenees !!
19 December 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

"Santa Buddies" is an entertaining family flick, that really hits the mark when it comes to the Christmas spirit. The dogs are fun to watch and very adorable and the cast is OK, with known names as Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) and George Wendt (House, Cheers TV-series). Not just for the kids among us, it is enjoyable for anyone. Talking dogs is nothing new, but it is nicely done with lots of funny moments.

But what kind of dog is that white puppy and the great white one ? Well the answer is: Pyrenean Mountain Dogs, also known as the Great Pyrenees. We happen to own one ourselves and they are kind of rare. It is nice to finally see them on the big screen.
