Although he is not small and cute like the other puppies in the pet shop, Blue takes a chance and gives a strong bark that attracts the attention of three year old Geno and his Mommy and Nana. Geno falls in love with the puppy at first sight, and Mommy and Nana are captivated by the puppy's strong bark. Blue learns that his appearance is not as important as who he is, and that being different is not such a bad thing. Blue: The Luckiest Dog in the World tells how Blue grows up to be a happy, grateful, and responsible dog in spite of the ever-changing circumstances in his life.
