POUND PUPPIES: HOMEWARD POUND cover image
"The dog is funny." The kids laughed at the dogs, and though they played throughout, they never left the room and frequently turned their attention back to the story. The boys played with trains, pretending to go pick up dogs and other little animals and deliver them to the adults in the room. They included character names from the stories in their games. The length of the stories and complication of the story lines is better suited to kids over age 3, but all enjoy it.
The premise is that there is an organization within the pound, ran by dogs, to help puppies find new homes. In "Homeward Pound," we find out that the Pound Puppies is an international organization. It is fun to think that there is a secret organization around the world to help puppies. The characters are diverse, but slightly stereotyped; the Chihuahua has a Spanish or Mexican accent and a temper, while the Dachshund is German and stern. There is some name-calling, "stupid" and "jerk," to watch for, especially with very young children. In the first episode, two dogs who don't always get along are working together to help a puppy find his perfect human. They get lost and need to work together to get back home. Community building is a major theme of this series. The Pound Puppies are sworn to protect and help puppies. Entertaining, creative and humorous. This appeals to a wide range of kids. The stories vary in content and presentation and the characters are friendly and appealing.
They might look like regular dogs, but the Pound Puppies of Shelter 17 are on a sworn mission to find great homes for all the lonely pooches under their watch. Join the puppies as they attempt to match their canine friends with loving families and have a few adventures along the way. Includes 5 episodes plus a bonus feature: Learn to Draw Lucky!
