Storyline

A DOG NAMED GUCCI tells the story of a 10-week old puppy named Gucci who was hung by his neck, doused with lighter fluid, and set afire. Doug James, standing on his porch nearby, heard the puppy's cries and ran to help. He scared away the thugs and at the request of Gucci's 15-year-old runaway owner, took the dog in for the night. Thus began a 16-year odyssey of devotion and perseverance. Together with local legislators, Doug and Gucci would see the "Gucci Bill" passed, changing the laws in Alabama, making domestic animal abuse a felony. Gucci would go from being a survivor to a rock star, the face of animal abuse in the south. And together they proved one voice can make a difference and that justice really is a dog's best friend.

The Power of Social Media is making a Difference to Help Abused Animals
18 November 2015 | by mlausfeldSee all my reviews

As this film makes clear, we are finally seeing a change in the way our society perceives the abuse of animals. It reinforces the power of social action, and the attendant amplification of that power through social media. The film is a plea not for funding or institutional support, but for simply caring about the welfare of animals and speaking up to encourage that laws against abuse are enforced by local authorities. The emphasis here is not on showing abuse, although inevitably the survivors are important to the story, but on the people who have struggled to change animal cruelty laws. Finally in the 21st century, such abuse can be charged as felony crime in our country. As a film, it tells a wonderful and inspiring story of individuals who cared to fight for animals, told largely through interviews and news footage. The result is that by promoting change in person and online, everyday people can insure that the welfare of animals is being enhanced and their abusers punished.
