It takes a special kind of dog to teach a family some new tricks. Christmas is coming, and notorious stray pup/escape artist Shelby (voiced by Rob Schneider) is once again locked up in the dog pound. But when a spoiled rich kid tries to adopt him for all the wrong reasons, Shelby runs away and hides in the suburban basement of 10-year-old aspiring magician Jake Parker (John Paul Ruttan of ROBOCOP). With the frazzled local dogcatcher (Tom Arnold) hot on their tail, can Jake, his siblings and their visiting grandpa (Chevy Chase) pull off the ultimate trick to rescue Shelby and make him part of their family forever? Jefferson Brown (MAKE YOUR MOVE) co-stars in this heartwarming comedy about Christmas miracles, Christmas magic, and the holiday love that speaks to us all.
