The Good Dog follows the adventures of Tako, a puppy who is adopted by 8 year-old Ricky without his parents’ permission. Mom and dad agree to let Tako stay, under one condition: he must be a good dog and always follow the rules.
Tako wants to stay with the family more than anything; but when a competing businessman sets out to secretly sabotage the family’s bakery, the only way Tako can protect them is to break the rules.
Ultimately, Tako and Ricky’s family discover small people can accomplish big things and sometimes you have to be a little bit bad to be very good.
