Dove Review

It is amazing how a new pet in the family can cause a big change for everyone. This story tells how one cute and adorable sheep herding dog brings together a father, son and daughter following the death of the mother of the family. Lisa returns to the family farm after being away for many years and there are many changes that she is not aware of. But when she decides to stay and to adopt a dog which she names Lucky, little does she know how lucky this family will be to have this pet in their lives.

There are many lessons that are taught in this wonderful family movie. As mentioned in the synopsis, this movie has important values of family, community and working together for a second chance. Although we believe this is a wholesome entertaining movie, we must warn that there are some scenes that may frighten younger children. This being said we award this film the Dove “Family-Approved” 12+ Seal.
