Movie Info

Suburban couple Mark (Dean Jones) and Fran (Suzanne Pleshette) take their beloved dachshund, Danke, to the vet's office to deliver her first brood of puppies. Before they leave, Dr. Pruitt (Charlie Ruggles) persuades softhearted Mark to adopt Brutus, a tiny puppy that has been abandoned by its mother. As the puppy grows into a full-size Great Dane that raises a ruckus around the house, Fran tries to convince Mark to find him a new home -- until a brave act helps change her mind.

Audience Reviews for The Ugly Dachshund

  • Apr 11, 2010
    The Ugly Dachshund is good old-fashioned clean sterilized (separate beds and all) Disney fun. Hokey story you can't quite bring yourself to care about complete with Suzanne Pleshette's (character's, at least) neurotic OCD and second guessing nature with some classic racial stereotypes make The Ugly Dachshund a piece of a yesteryear I think its safe to say never existed. Admittedly, this movie is probably fun for dog lovers (and possibly the only reason I actually kind of enjoyed it) but watching a Great Dane get sprayed in the face with a tube of oil paint is the mark of a movie made before a representative from the Humane Society was legally obligated to be on set. If you get to see The Ugly Dachshund on DVD I strongly recommend the nonsensical extras. Namely the featurette on Mako where he carries on like he's filming an episode of Inside the Actor's Studio. Guy gets nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar and all of the sudden he's Walter Fucking Brennan. You know who else got nominated for an Oscar? Courtney Love. Don't feel so special now, do you Mako?
