Dove "Family-Approved"
For Ages 12 and Over


Josh loves dogs and has always longed for a puppy of his own. But as the youngest in a big family, having a pet is out of the question…until he meets Tiger. Abandoned near Josh’s house, the loveable pooch is cute, cuddly and best of all, he can talk! Tiger begins to grow on Josh’s family, but just as they are starting to accept him, their new furry friend goes missing.

Dove Review

This is a unique and interesting movie! The movie features a talking dog named Tiger and he speaks to a child (in the child’s mind). A mother and father with four children do not want a pet, thinking it would be an added expense. The youngest child wants a dog. A puppy left behind becomes the boy’s dog, Tiger.

Some of the themes of the movie include loyalty, love, and companionship. We are happy to award this movie our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus, due to some utterances of mild language. This movie will remind the viewer of a boy’s best friend, his pet, and in this case it is Tiger.
