REVIEW

A DOG'S WAY HOME "... a family-friendly adventure that tugs at your heartstrings."

----------------------------------------------------BY: ALANA HOLT Staff Photographer ----------------------------------------------------Based on the book of the same title by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog?s Way Home, shows the long and distant journey of a dog named Bella who was rescued and loved by her family in Denver, Co. Bella was deemed a Pitbull mix and due to a Denver city ordinance her family decided it was safer for her to stay with friends temporarily. However, Bella wanted to go home and be with her human, Lucas. During the course of the film, Bella travels hundreds of miles searching for home, along the way meeting dogs, Colorado wildlife and humans across all walks of life. Some days she clings to nothing but hope to put one paw in front of the other to find her way home. Told from Bella?s point of view, A Dog?s Way Home is a family-friendly adventure that tugs at your heartstrings. The movie also features beautiful moments showcasing the powerful bond between veterans suffering from PTSD, or other struggles, and the comfort of a dog. Additionally, it brings attention to breed-specific canine legislation and the difficult separation, possible dangers, and even potential euthanasia that come with it. It?s a wonderful watch for dog lovers, families, or anyone craving movie theatre popcorn with a light-hearted film. And all can rest easy knowing no animals were ever in danger in the making of the film.
