Pup Star is back for an all-new adventure!

As they prepare for the Pup Star competition to reach its finale, each experiences life through a very different collar and discover the importance of family and being true to yourself.

Dove Review

“Pup Star: Better 2gether” continues the wonderful legacy of the “Air Bud” series, imagining a world where humans and animals communicate as one, breathing community. This is a wonderful franchise for youngsters as the film celebrates fun and joy!

Families will have a lot of fun watching how “Pup Star” pokes fun (in a friendly way) at television programs like “American Idol,” but the greatest fun comes from watching the two main pups – Tiny and Scrappy, two Yorkie puppies from different sides of the street – go through a delightful role reversal. Pampered Tiny has her identity switched to live among bullish alley cats and hounds, while Scrappy gets a lick at living in high society, and with a family. They both learn, lessons about how all parts become a whole, and they find joy by working together and always learning.

This is fine children’s entertainment, a great fun for families as they can discuss the importance of family and friends. Dove is proud to award “Pup Star” with a Seal of Approval for All Ages.
