When Bella is first taken to the VA Hospital and is hidden in a storeroom, and she barks, Lucas enters, then Olivia. Neither closes the door. It is closed when Teo knocks. 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 »
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.'
