Synopsis

Doggie B
An aspiring veterinarian strives to save her uncle's failing dog dancing studio by shaping her faithful canine companion into the Fred Astaire of fidos in this animal film for the entire family. Cassie's Uncle Peter has been shaping dogs into dancers for years. But when his studio is threatened with closure, Cassie (Jesse Draper) realizes that she may have the power to save it. With the Dog Dancing Championships fast approaching, the devoted niece begins teaching her dog Pijo how to cut a rug. Should he take the top prize, Uncle Peter will get to keep his studio. As the competition heats up, however, returning champions Gertrude (Bettina Devin) and Chaos prove to be fierce contenders. And though winning won't come easy, Cassie and Pijo prove they're up to the challenge by giving the judges a show they'll never forget. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I Heart Shakey
A precocious young girl shows her father that a little loyalty goes a long way when a move leaves the family dog looking for a new home. Upon landing his dream job as a master chef in Chicago, devoted single father and dog owner J.T. (Steve Lemme) realizes too late that his new lease has a strict "no pets allowed" clause. Inconsolable at the prospect of losing her beloved dog Shakey, J.T.'s mischievous daughter Chandler (Rylie Behr) devises a plan to keep her four-legged friend, and teach her father a valuable lesson about the importance of being a loyal companion.

Smitty: The Movie
A troubled teen spends the summer on his grandfather's Iowa farm and learns some valuable life lessons from a rescued kennel dog in this affectionate coming of age story featuring Peter Fonda and Louis Gossett, Jr. When the banks foreclose on the farm where Smitty lives, the happy-go-lucky mutt ends up in an Iowa dog shelter. Meanwhile, in the city, 13 year old Ben Barrett (Brandon Taylor Russell) has just been arrested for breaking and entering and grand theft. His mother (Mira Sorvino) at her wits end, Ben is offered the choice of spending three years in juvenile detention, or three months on his grandfather's Jack's farm in Iowa. And no-nonsense Jack (Fonda) isn't about to let his grandson off the hook. Convinced that Ben will adjust more quickly to country life with the help of a friend, Jack goes to the local pound and selects Smitty to keep an eye on his mischievous grandson. Though at first Ben resents the fact that he's suddenly saddled with the responsibility of caring for a dog, a kindly neighbor (Gossett, Jr.) helps to steer the teen down the right path while he reconnects with his family, and learns the importance of responsibility. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
