Deputy District Attorney Dave Douglas takes his job very seriously -- so seriously, that his wife and family hardly ever see him. A case involving an animal laboratory finds Dave once again taking an extended leave of absence from his frustrated family. His luck takes a turn for the worst after he is inadvertently infected by a top-secret genetic-mutation serum that transforms the two-legged lawyer into a four-legged sheepdog. Though his current situation has its drawbacks, the fly-on-the-wall perspective afforded to Douglas in his newfound state alerts the well-intending father and husband that all is not well on the home front. Moved by the unfulfilled needs of his neglected family and determined to become a better father, Dave's unique new vantage point could offer just the motivation needed to bring the nefarious forces behind the serum to justice and win back his wife and kids once and for all.
