Miracle Dogs

I know a lot of people are going to see The Hunger Games this weekend. (Which is a great movie by the way.) One of the actors, Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark actually starred in a movie that explored the healing power of dogs when he was much younger.

In Miracle Dogs, he teams up with a dog named Annie who he finds while moving to a new town. Annie (a cancer survivor with only 3 legs) is sent to the pound in the hopes that she gets adopted. When her time there starts running out Charlie (Josh Hutcherson) breaks her and a male dog out.

Puppies are born and now there are several dogs that need a place to stay. Charlie decides to keep the dogs in the basement of the hospital where his parents work, just until he can find them permanent homes. But then something happens.

Annie and her pups sneak out at night and visit the patients after hours. And oddly enough, the patients start recovering at incredible rates. 

Not everyone is excited about the "miracle dogs" though and Charlie ends up causing problems for his family and friend by protecting these dogs.

Miracle Dogs might not have gotten the rave reviews of The Hunger Games, but it is a good family friendly movie that also lets your cheer for the underdogs!
