Movie Info

A small town bands together to save the life of a heroic dog named Semper Fi while dealing with such common issues as unruly teens and precocious youngsters in this affectionate story about man's best friend. Semper Fi is a golden retriever that has recently received a grim diagnosis by the vet. Now, in order to live, the ailing pooch will need to receive some expensive surgery. Nevertheless, the kids in this family aren't willing to let their furry pal die without a fight, and before long the fifteen year-old daughter begins planning a massive, community wide yard sale to fund the operation. As the holidays draw near and even the grumpy neighbor proves to be a valuable friend, a sudden emergency finds this faithful companion willing to give up his life for the sake of his loving masters.

Audience Reviews for For the Love of a Dog

For cute movie, with wonderful acting and a great story. If you have pets and love them this is a must see, but be warned it will definitely pull at your heartstrings.

quite frankly the worst movie ever made aside from Paul Blart: Mall Cop. worst acting ever. the story may have been touching, but the acting is inexcusable. the kids were bad as hello kitty, but sadly i know kids like that.
