I came across this movie when I was looking for one for my grandson's stocking stuffers.
This movie is inspired by a true story of a Jack Russell Terrier and a rescued miniature horse. When 17-year-old Addy's Dad dies, father, she retreats from her family and struggles to deal with his death. Ella, with her dog Dally, reach out to create a bond with Addy and Spanky, Not only do the animals get along, but they quickly become a dynamic duo thanks to Addy and Ella’s training. Their act quickly goes viral and wins their high school talent show, bringing the girls closer! Unfortunately, the family realizes that the cost to keep Spanky is too high and they’ll have to send him away. But Addy gets an idea and submits their routine to a popular TV talent show.
I worried at 6 thia movie might be too sad for him for it was terrific and he just lives ot! We've watched it many times since "Santa" delivered it!
