By  | 

Everyone who owns a dog knows one thing is true — 99 percent of the time, you like that dog better than you like people. He listens without talking back, he cuddles with you when you’re sad, he plays with you whenever you want; basically, your pooch is the best friend anyone could ever want. So, whether you have a pup that meets these criteria or simple adore all things animals, you’re going to OB-SESS over Nickelodeon’s newest TV movie that explores what would happen if your furry companion became your real-life BFF!

Rufus, which stars Henry Danger’s, Jace Norman Bella and the Bulldogs’ Haley Tju Shake It Up!’s Davis Cleveland, is the story about what happens when a young boy stumbles upon a magical necklace, only to realize it made his dog turn into a human! Seems a bit confusing? We get it! Here’s the official summary that should clear things up:



Manny (Davis Cleveland) has moved to a new school, and it’s not easy to fit in. After wishing he had more friends, Manny finds a mysterious necklace and puts it on Rufus, the family dog. Suddenly, Rufus (Jace Norman) turns into a boy! When the kids at school notice Rufus’ silly dog antics, he immediately becomes the most popular kid around. Soon, Manny becomes jealous of his new best friend, but eventually learns that a dog’s loyalty to his owner always comes first.
