What an incredible documentary
4 October 2016 | by floyd-52See all my reviews

Neutrino and I watched the whole thing. Couldn't look away. Eye-opening, tender and sweet, smart -- it has it all. Great music, bringing variety and little tonal changes-of-pace.

Makes you want to have a shelter, or wish there was no need for one.

Pet stores should be required to show documentaries like this on a continuous loop. Selling a different message from the "buy a puppy" one.

The Champions are also the incredible people and families who helped rescue these dogs.

Hard to imagine the states and cities that ban pit bulls. One of the great injustices of our time.

If you can watch this movie and not shed a tear, or ten, then you in particular need to rescue a dog. As soon as possible.
