Buddy, the sensational real-life hoop hound with 22,000 career baskets under his collar, stars in this hilarious and touching movie. When Josh Framm, a 12-year-old boy, finds himself in a new city with no friends, he's too shy to try out for the basketball team. However, while practicing, he meets Buddy, a runaway golden retriever, who surprises him with his ability to score baskets. Josh and Buddy eventually make the school team, and the dog's extraordinary talents spark a media frenzy - one that attracts Buddy's greedy former owner (Michael Jeter), who wants to cash in on the dog's notoriety. Boy and dog must keep one step ahead of the brute - while at the same time rallying their school team to the state finals!
