Tells the childhood story of the character portrayed by Bruce Greenwood in A Dog Named Christmas(2009). See more »


The mother of young George, who did not have nearly as much screen time as the Grandmother, is the one featured in the publicity photo most often seen and used to advertise the movie. The scene featured never happened and is obviously a photo shopped picture with the Grandfather and Tucker (the dog) inserted. See more »

Nice Film
2 November 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I Have Reviewed OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES.

On all Christmas movies BEWARE OF FAKE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. Many reviewers have only have ONE REVIEW. When it's a POSITIVE REVIEW chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. If its a negative review then they may have a huge grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films. The only reason why I review them is to keep track of what "I have seen".

In this film the events follow a boy months following his father's death, a boy learns about responsibility, the loyalty of friends and the power of love through his bond with a special dog.

This film is very pleasant. It has a huge heart. The main theme of this film is "Adjusting" and "Tucker" is a catalyst for love and opening up.

The Grandpa in this film also happens to remind of my dad. (Which is good). I also love the fact that "KIndness in return" has its rewards.

I was surprised how much I liked this film. IF you love dogs this is a must see.
