About this movie

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!

I used to watch this nearly every day or week for a long time. Now, I need to do the same thing and buy it on pay day. This and Shiloh and Homeward Bound are some of my top fave films in my life. I miss when my loved ones and me were younger--in a time when time had no meaning. Love you Buddy 4vr💚💜☘️🍀
