One To Watch - "A Dog Named Christmas"
The holiday season opens with a festive canine tale
When Todd McCray (Fisher) hears that a local animal shelter is seeking temporary homes for its dogs during the days leading up to Christmas, he sets out to convince his family that they should foster a dog. Despite his father George's (Greenwood) objections, Todd prevails and the McCrays become a foster family to a lovable, energetic lab, whom Todd names "Christmas."
Not content with helping just one dog, Todd uses his initiative and special gifts of persuasion to encourage his entire community to participate in fostering all the dogs from the shelter.
Will Todd be allowed to keep “Christmas” beyond the holidays? You’ll have to watch to find out! A Dog Named Christmas premieres on the CBS-TV network, Sunday, November 29 at 9:00pm, ET/PT
