About Dogs

Here’s a tail-wagging musical about everyone’s best friend! Ralph, a lonely kind of guy, and Angel, a special gal from “up North,” who care for homeless dogs at the city animal shelter. Each dog has a special story to share. You’ll meet Fifi, Rover, Daisy and the gang, all longing to be adopted. Only Max, with leather jacket, greased back ears, and sunglasses, is too cool to admit he wants a home also. Time at the shelter is limited and only a miracle can save the furry characters.
