When single mom Megan Nolan moves to a new town, she feels guilty for uprooting her ten-year-old daughter Caitlin. Seeing that the little girl's only friend is a neighbor's dog, Megan decides to adopt a shelter pet for Caitlin. She immediately regrets her decision when Caitlin gravitates to the biggest, sloppiest dog in the pound, Jake. Megan's beautiful new home is now in shambles and, as Megan considers returning Jake to the shelter, handsome ballplayer Ben shows up claiming Jake is his dog, the regrettable outcome of his roommate leaving a gate open. Megan and Ben butt heads. Ben wants to take his dog and leave, until he sees that Caitlin loves Jake as much as he ever could. Now it is clear: the pound puppy everyone loves deserves no less than joint custody. Written by Hallmark Channel

Man's Best Friend
9 September 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

When minor league ballplayer Victor Webster's dog runs away, he is adopted by Candace Cameron's Bure's daughter and eventually they all fall in love.

Dogs have been a mainstay of movies since 1905's RESCUED BY ROVER and the large Heinz 57 that plays Jake the dog in this movie is a charmer. His on screen poor training provides most of jokes and tensions in this movie.

In the midst of the amiably plotted story, we are offered some useful lessons on how to train a dog. Since some of the other reviews of Hallmark Channel movies indicate it is watched by older people with their children and grandchildren and each commercial break offers a message urging people to adopt a homeless pet.... well, let's hope that they do.
