Solving robberies and unraveling the details of his father’s death, keep Robby and friends on the move in this family film that will have you cheering big and believing bigger in the power of friendship.

Dove Review

It is always hard for a child to except a loss of a parent. A year ago Robbie lost his dad and is still trying to come to terms with it. Robbie and his mom decide to adopt his father’s K9 partner Marlowe, but when Robbie and Marlowe get to close to what really happened to Robbie’s father tragedy hits again. Then something magical happens to bring out the truth that has happened to both the police officer and his K9.

This is a charming movie about one little boy and the aid he gets to help him recover from his personal loss of his father and a dog. With clumsy bad guys and a mystery to solve, the family will enjoy this movie from beginning to end. It is a wholesome movie that will make you laugh and cry at times, making it the perfect family night movie.

We award “Cop Dog” the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
