This dog deserves an Oscar
30 January 2019 | by smpawsonSee all my reviews

Loved it. Better than Benji, Lassie, and Old Yeller combined. Dog has an epic adventure trying to return to her "person" - lots of belly laughs, lots of tears. Plot and storyline was great, my 8 year old twin girls thoroughly loved it (and will probably watch it again once it comes out on Prime).
