The puppy Bella (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard) seems to have a great life. She’s got an attentive owner (Jonah Hauer-King) who is in a good relationship with a young woman (Alexandra Shipp) and has a stable relationship with his mom (Ashley Judd). Bella has a whole family, and she’s happy.
But when an impulsive moment separates Bella from her family, she begins a journey that will take her hundreds of miles from home. Rather than accept her new fate, Bella faces the incredible journey home, making friends and avoiding danger as she sniffs out the path back to her owner.

the homosexuality in the movie was completely unnecessary. from the rainbow collar on the dog and the camera focusing on the men's wedding bands, it wasn't needed at all in a kid's movie
One of the best and sweetest movies I'd seen in a while.
With her sweet face, alert eyes, and a tail that forever waves in the air like a maestro’s baton, this is a dog worth following, no matter the breed.
This year’s entry into the winter animal-movie canon, A Dog’s Way Home, comes this close to just being a simple, cute animal movie, until the humans complicate things.
Putting a dog in crisis might seem like an easy way to create a great story, but in a family film, featuring a helpless canine in constant peril plays as emotionally manipulative and, frankly, slightly traumatizing. A Dog’s Way Home is a joyless jaunt that offers an adorable canine star and not much else.
