Movie dog Rexxx, aka Dewey, is lost during an airplane stunt and winds up in the reluctant care of sullen 12-year-old Shane Fahey (Hutcherson). Shane and his dad, Connor (Greenwood), are going through a rough time as Connor has taken charge of an embattled inner-city fire station called Dogpatch. But the kid soon realizes that Dewey is no ordinary mutt and his furry pal becomes both a rescue dog and the perfect PR tool. There's lots of bonding and hey, it's a dog movie! What could be better? Okay there are a few things better than this particular dog movie. Like a trip to the vet.
