Lovable bulldog Sonny becomes the target of a mafia dog hunt after swallowing a priceless ring, and running off to live with a friendly suburban family in this comedy starring SNL alumni Chris Parnell. Having a mob kingpin for a master gets Sonny plenty of perks, but when the hungry pooch accidentally ingests an irreplaceable ring, he finds out just how disloyal humans can be. Narrowly escaping the wrath of his master's henchmen, Sonny doesn't stop running until he winds up in the suburbs, and befriends 12 year old Josh. At first Josh's overburdened dad Brian (Parnell) isn't too thrilled about his drooling new houseguest, but when the henchmen dognap Sonny, he realizes that the dog has become part of their family. Now, with his family by his side and the help of some neighborhood kids, Brian vows to get back their four legged friend even if it means taking on some of the toughest criminals in the city.
