George McCray, his wife and their 20-year-old developmentally challenged son, Todd, are preparing for their usual family Christmas when a local animal shelter begins to advertise for families to foster a pet for the holidays. George firmly opposes the idea of bringing a dog into their home. He's worried that Todd cannot accept the responsibility, and will become too attached and not want to return the dog after Christmas. But that's before his wife and son—with the help of a wise yellow Lab—work their persuasive magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDNfan A great movie
I thought the commercials were funny, so I gave it a shot. It was so much more. Non-Studio (big Hollywood) movies always have a stigma about acting and production quality, but this movie proves them wrong.
As someone who adopted a senior dog, it was good to see Christmas as an older dog as well. Adopt a senior!

A great story for every age!
A suggestion would be that you include closed captions for hearing impaired people like myself. (If they were included, the instructions on how to activate them were not).
I still was able to follow the story fairly well, but would have enjoyed it much more if I could have seen the dialogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bbrown DVD: A Dog Named Christmas
Warm, loving story of a boy and his dog--wonderful for the Christmas season. The prequel, Christmas with Tucker, is worth seeing after you have seen this one, too!
