Ugly Benny

DVD Release: July 7, 2015
Ugly Benny


We’ve all heard the saying “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover,” and perhaps nobody embodies the sage wisdom of that advice better than Benny, or “Ugly Benny” as he has come to be called by those who have encountered him at “For Pet’s Sake Pet Store.”

A fuzzy, frumpled, tiny ball of frazzled yarn with four paws and two sweet eyes peeking out, Benny certainly wasn’t much to look at when he first arrived as a puppy on the doorstep of the pet store. Sam and Emma found him waiting there in a little box one morning, just staring up at them with those tiny, lovable little eyes, and to this day no one knows where he came from or who brought him there.

Enjoy this inspiring and uplifting story for family members of all ages!

Dove Review

Emma and Sam have been together since elementary school and have been married forever. With kind hearts and a love of animals, they run a quaint little pet store in Summerville. They have a routine every day as they open the store, and they know everyone in town. But things change when a cute/ugly little puppy is left at the store and becomes part of their family.

Benny, as they name the little dog, is a charmer and has qualities no one would expect in a dog. He makes friends easily and does unexpected things for people who frequent the store. The most important thing he does is chase a young boy named Alex into the store. There is something about Benny that knows the right thing to do in any moment.

This is a fantastic movie for the entire family; it is filled with heartwarming comedy and fun, plus it’s very entertaining. The Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages is proudly awarded to “Ugly Benny.”
