Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette star in this Walt Disney family comedy as Mark and Fran Garrison, a dog-loving couple with different tastes in canines. When their dachshund gives birth to puppies, kindly veterinarian Dr. Pruitt (Charlie Ruggles) convinces Mark to take a Great Dane puppy home with him. The Great Dane, named Brutus, grows up with the tiny pups convinced that he's also a dachshund. Brutus's confused identity sets the stage for a number of mildly comic bits -- he chases policemen up trees, destroys Mark's studio, and ruins a garden party. Fran finally tells Mark that Brutus has to go, but changes her tune when Brutus saves Fran's favorite dachshund puppy, Chloe, from a scrap heap. When Fran announces that she is entering Chloe in a dog show, Mark secretly enters Brutus in the same contest in an effort to convince Brutus to think like a Great Dane.

      Great movie for young and old alike. A story all can relate to, and find humor within. Three were bought, and this last time the two that were purchased we for gifts. One for a Great Dane lover and owner, and the other for a Dachshund lover and owner. I will be giving them to them for Valentines Day. As for my copy, it has been watched repeatedly!

      This is a wonderful Disney film! This movie can easily be loved by families, especially if they are dog lovers like myself. This movie consists of 4 dacshunds belonging to Fran Garrison, and one great dane belonging to her husband, Mark Garrison. The movie focuses on the twists and turns of having 4 small dogs, and one giant dog. I have loved this movie since I was a little girl, and I'm certain that any dog lover will love it too!

      I think this movie is so funny. It is about normal people that live their lives clean and show positive role models. I can not find a thing wrong with it. This is what Walt Disney wanted for his movies.Great job!

      This is such a good movie, and, as old as it is, it was so nice to find it on DVD, and at a reasonable price.
