Logline

When seven-year-old Tom rescues a funny looking little dachshund from the dog pound, he has no idea that they’re about to take off on a series of high-flying adventures—literally. Max has a tail that spins instead of wagging. When he hears the name of his favorite food—sausages—it spins so fast he can actually fly!

Short Summary

A dog-pound manager and an imposter policeman confiscate Max, claiming his original owner has been found. Tom dreams that he asks the queen of England—a fellow dog lover—for help, and she threatens to jail the pound manager in the Tower of London if Max isn't released. The dream gives Tom an idea.


Tom and his mother team up, rescue Max and confront the bad guys. Chaos ensues as Max literally flies to the rescue of all the other pooches locked up. The bad guys are arrested. Back at Tom’s house all the pound dogs enjoy a big dinner of sausages before going off to their forever homes.
