The filmmakers were intent on choosing a rescue dog to star in the survival tale adaptation of the novel by W. Bruce Cameron, the same author who wrote the book adapted for A Dog's Purpose (2017). The pooch also had to be a pit bull mix, as in the book. The Internet search ended at a Tennessee no-kill shelter, which had rescued Shelby The Dog from a squalid life in a nearby landfill.

About an hour into the film, there is a snow avalanche. Two men rescue Bella and take her to a cabin in the woods. While opening the large sliding glass door, a crew member can be seen in the reflection of the glass. See more »
I knew now that my journey was much longer than I'd ever imagined.

Despite the opening titles before the prologue and the first half of the closing credits is displayed via fading, the movie's title, shown after the prologue, is zooming slightly forward. The text is upper-cased white. See more »

Touching family adventure
Bella is born a stray in the narrow space under an abandoned house. When the rest of her family is impounded she is adopted into a human household. But when she grows up her new family sends her far away from home.
I got a lot more out of this movie than I expected. It was just starting to drag after about a quarter hour but then the dog gets separated and the adventure begins. It reminded me a lot of, 'The Incredible Journey (1963).'
Great for young children. There is a little bit of threat.
I particularly liked, 'Big Kitten.'
