In my previous post a wrote about what I consider some of the Best & Worst Movies that have dogs in them. Keep in mind this is my personal opinions on these movies. Below are some movies not included in the list that I feel deserved an Honorable Mention. These movies may not be among my top favorites, but are definitely worth a watch if you love dogs.
Movies with Dogs… Honorable Mentions:
Snow Dogs (2002)
IMDb Description: “When a Miami dentist inherits a team of sled dogs, he’s got to learn the trade or lose his pack to a crusty mountain man.”
I remember that I have seen this movie, but honestly can’t remember that much about it. That is one reason it did not make the original list. From what I remember it is basically a slap-stick comedy with Cuba Gooding Jr. and a pack of snow dogs. It has some laughs, but overall not super exciting.
The Fox and the Hound (1981)
IMDb Description: “Two childhood friends find themselves forced to become enemies.”
I remember absolutely loving this movie as a child. With fun adventures and just enough danger, this heart-warming film will give you many smiles.
IMDb Description: “To stop an elusive criminal, a maverick detective enlists the aid of a police dog who’s an unusually intelligent smart Alec.”
A buddy cop movie starring James Belushi. Only his buddy cop isn’t an almost retired, cranky guy, it’s a beautiful German Shepherd police dog. The movie over-all is just another 80s buddy-cop movie, but I think this dog makes it worth the watch. You’ll have a few laughs, and if you’re anything like me, you will want a German Shepherd for your next dog.
The Adventures of Milo & Otis (1986)
IMDb Description: “The adventures of a young cat and a dog as they find themselves accidentally separated and each swept into a hazardous trek.”
I remember enjoying this film as a young child…definitely family approved. As an adult, it lacks the excitement that we crave these days. Worth a watch.
Oliver and Company (1988)
IMDb Description: “A lost and alone kitten joins a gang of dogs engaged in petty larceny in New York.”
I honestly don’t remember much about this movie except that I enjoyed it as a child. Good family watch.
IMDb Description: “A stray dog saves two kidnapped children.”
Benji is a dog with a heart of gold. Helping everyone in need from other animals to humans. A heart-warming story.
