When Oliver discovers some abandoned puppies (the parents of the house left the home owing money) he can’t bring himself to sell them as his friends ask. His friends have just accepted him into their gang but Oliver falls for the puppies and is determined to help them track down their mother. She was taken by an animal shelter and she longs to be reunited with her brood. When Oliver lets his parents know he wants the mother Golden Retriever for Christmas because he can at least spend time with her and her puppies, they begin to realize just how busy they have been. A thief gets the gang involved in plans for a bank heist at Christmas and it looks like Oliver might be the only one who can save the day.
