The Dog Who Saved Summer


Summer’s Here and School’s Out…for Everyone but Zeus! When former police K-9 dog Zeus (voiced by Mario Lopez) accidentally destroys an important party, the Bannister family decides to send him to obedience school. Meanwhile, a familiar trio of bumbling burglars (Dean Cain of “Lois & Clark,” Patrick Muldoon of “Days of Our Lives” and Joey ‘Coco’ Diaz) is planning a daring diamond heist. Can Zeus outsmart the hard-nosed instructor (Martin Kove of the original “The Karate Kid”) and his Marine K-9 dog Apollo to win the big tournament and foil the jewel robbery in time for the real dog days of summer? Gary Valentine (“The King of Queens”), Elisa Donovan (“Sabrina, The Teenage Witch”) and Francesca Capaldi (“Dog with a Blog”) co-star in this all-new, fun-in-the-sun comedy for the whole family.

Dove Review

Our favorite talking dog, Zeus, is back and summer has began. Belinda is trying to start a new catering business and, of course, George and the kids are trying to help. But the best laid plan sometimes don’t come out as hoped.

When Belinda’s competition show up at the baby shower with her little dog, things go awry at the charming party and unfortunately Zeus gets the blame for the terrible situation. In hopes of saving the business and preventing this from happening again, Zeus and George are sent to obedience school. Little does the duo know that there is more going on around the school than even the head trainer knows.

Zeus and the Bannister family are a fun, entertaining group to watch. The comedy is always wholesome for the entire family. We proudly award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
