Synopsis

Dug, the loveable dog from the Pixar feature film 'Up', can communicate with people due to his special collar which verbalises his thoughts. Goofy but good-natured, he wants to celebrate his birthday by helping his canine colleagues find the exotic bird which his master has tasked them in catching. However, the other dogs dislike him and stage multiple, cruel attempts to avoid him. Essentially a prequel to Dug’s scene-stealing appearance in 'Up', this is a lovely animated short that deals with bullying and positivity in the face of adversity.
