The Brown family’s lives are about to be turned upside down and filled with unforeseen challenge and misery. The onset of a category five hurricane changes the lives of thousands of people and animals in the immediate area of Louisiana and Mississippi.
During this time, pets were not accepted in shelters; so many animals were either left behind or became naturally lost and homeless. Buck was no exception. His struggle for survival exemplifies the strength of a hero who takes on a storybook journey. He moves from starving and wounded to leading the pack—a bonded collection of Buck and two additional homeless pups who need his wisdom and leadership. There are humorous times as these three amigos get into lots of trouble always looking for food and a better place. This new journey gives Buck numerous temporary owners, each one with its own unique story and challenges.
You might say Buck becomes notorious for the love of adventure and becomes good at it—almost famous; he even takes on a new profession using his discipline and intellect. During all of this drama with Buck, the Brown family has its own share of change in their lives.
