A foster boy is befriended by a lost dog who turns out to belong to the President of the United States. The boy decides to run away from the foster home to return the canine to the White House -- "Because it's the right thing to do!"
While US president Barrett opens a school bearing his name, his inseparable dog Teddy gets lost in the commotion when a gun is fired at its master. To avoid a press scandal, the matter is kept discrete. The dog wanders off to a country orphanage, where Teddy chooses as new master Danny Milbright, a shy boy who never seems to be considered for adoption but has a strong sense of justice, impelling him to return Teddy to his master. It proves an eventful journey all the way to D.C. Written by
The Oval Office desk, rug and props are those used in the The West Wing TV series, and both National Treasure movies. The Oval Office set was a full scale replica of the Oval Office, and was built specifically for First Dog on the stage of the Sobrato high school theater by high school film students and teachers under a unique mentorship program. The mentorship program was created by First American Cinema to mentor the senior students on an actual feature film set. The mentorship program was created by Bryan Michael Stoller of First American Cinema, and Gary Harmon of the Sobrato High School (Sobrato Conservatory of the Arts). See more »
Great family film with no bad language and has a great message
My wife and kids found this at Redbox. Thought it was interesting, and of course they HAD to have me watch it the next day. It is a cute and touching movie that keeps you interested throughout the entire movie. Most of the actors in it are unknown, but there are a few known actors that make special appearances. This was done by an independent group that did an awesome job. Such a wholesome movie with no bad language.
Do you like animals, (and especially dogs)? Do you like "tear jerking" movies? Do you like movies that have a neat message? Then this is a movie that fits all those descriptions! Definitely and must try...I think you'll enjoy it!!
