Plot Summary

Owen Baker is a 12-year-old loner who has been working as a neighborhood dog-walker so he can earn the privilege of getting a dog of his own. His hard work pays off when his parents let him adopt a scruffy mutt he names Hubble. Both boy and dog get more than they bargained for when Owen wakes up one morning to discover he can understand every word Hubble says, including the ominous phrase: "Take me to your leaders." Owen learns that dogs came to Earth thousands of years ago to colonize and dominate the planet. Hubble (who is really named Canid 3942) has been sent by the powerful Greater Dane on a mission from the Dog Star Sirius to make sure dogs have fulfilled this destiny. Despite the best efforts of Owen's rag-tag group of neighborhood dogs to convince him otherwise, Hubble soon discovers the awful truth about Earth dogs: "You're all pets!" Now Owen (a boy who never had a friend) and Hubble (a dog who never needed one) must work together to prepare the neighborhood dogs for a visit from The Greater Dane--or all dogs will be removed from the planet! The fate of Earth dogs hangs in the balance, and it's up to Owen, Hubble, and their canine companions to save man's best friend. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Liam Aiken was given his own Italian greyhound puppy (which he named Kes) as a gift for working on the film. It was to be presented on his last day of filming, but was withheld until the end of the day as his saddest scene was to be filmed on that day and the crew didn't want him to be happy. See more »
Goofs When Owen is trying to teach Hubble to play fetch and is throwing the ball for the other dogs, Nelly is always either at the back of the pack or not even seen. Italian Greyhounds, like Nelly, are built for speed and can run faster than most dogs. Most likely, if you were to throw a ball for a Bernese Mountain Dog (Shep, who was always in the front) and an Italian Greyhound, the greyhound would be way ahead of the Bernese Mountain Dog.

Quotes Wilson: You can really understand me? Right now, you can understand what I am saying to you?
