||Mr. Thomas, the farmer, didnít
particularly want a dog, but Mutt was special. She was a
stray and she was brave, therefore she won his heart and
the heart of Gilberto, the migrant workerís son. When Mutt
has four puppies, Gilberto is in his glory. The happiness
does not last though. Gilbertoís family must move on and
the puppies are left behind. Two of the puppies get
adopted by a nice family, but the other two (Luna and
Chief) end up in a terrible, scary place where they are
not treated very well: a puppy mill. Adventure ensues as
these feisty puppies hatch a plan of escape and find their
way to freedom. Muttís promise to her puppies was that
they would find their true purpose in life. Does their
motherís promise come true for Luna and Chief? Will they
ever be reunited with Gilberto? (New
