The Ugly Dachshund Movie Review Summary

Actors: Dean Jones, Suzanne Pleshette, Charlie Ruggles

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Ugly Dachshund

Young wife Fran Garrison (a very youthful Pleshette) is in a dither because her prize dachshund Danke is having a litter of pups, and she hopes to breed a champion. Husband Mark (Jones) rushes the expectant mother to the vet's, and while there allows himself to be talked into temporarily taking home a Great Dane puppy whose mother has abandoned him, so Danke can wetnurse him. Mark names the pup Brutus and hopes to keep him. But the fast-growing giant believes himself to be a dachshund, a lap dog, and swiftly earns Fran's disdain and dislike for his clumsy antics. Both dog and man must find some way to earn Fran's respect and acceptance. This entertaining 1966 feature is one of the better live-action comedies produced by the Disney studios.
