As Hooper struggles to find his place, he learns to overcome his fear of water and faces down feisty squirrels as well as the resident bully and top dog in his new neighborhood.
In a moving tale of adventure and triumph based on a true story, meet this tenacious puppy who makes an incredible journey in search of home.
