Dove Review

Moving to a new home and school is always difficult, especially for Austin and his sister. Their father is in the military, so they do not stay in one place for very long. Austin has a hard time making friends, so when his father is deployed to Afghanistan again, father and son find a special dog to keep Austin company. Little do they realize how much Dino will change their lives.

Two bumbling bad guys want to use Dino and go to extremes to dognap him. Austin must rescue the pup before it’s too late. The movie is filled with comedy and teaches that being popular isn’t always the way to make friends. Austin learns about the importance of having confidence and believing in yourself.

This charming, wholesome family movie is awarded the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
