The Dog Who Saved Halloween was a family movie night hit!
17 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

The Dog Who Saved Halloween was a big hit on our family movie night!!! We really enjoyed hearing our four Grandkids laugh so hard. We had bought "The Dog Who Saved Christmas, which the kids loved, so when we saw "The Dog Who Saved Halloween" we couldn't resist buying the newest "Dog" movie.Elisa Donovan is a fantastic actress as well as Gary Valentine. Dean Cain has been a favorite since he appeared in Superman, and his partner Joey Diaz is a hoot! Our Grandkids love the dog and think he is brilliant opening the refrigerator and bringing the drink to his owner, really impressed them! Our five year old Grand daughter asked us to buy the DVD of "The Dog Who Saved Halloween" as a present for her four year old cousin! Because its not that scary and it was really funny! We have decided to buy extra copies for Halloween gifts.
