funny, heart-warming Christmas movie.
I am an animal person. Always have been. Since I was born, my parents or my family have always had a dog.
Except for when we couldn’t have one while my brother was being treated for a pet allergy or when my landlord has forbidden owning one.
So whether you’re like me and need your doggie fix or just need a good movie to watch with the family, here are some of the good dog movies on Netflix.
I wasn’t around in 1955, but I’m so glad that Disney introduced the world to my FAVORITE Disney movie of all time – Lady & the Tramp.
This actually was the first Christmas dog movie!
The movie begins on Christmas morning in 1909, in a quaint Midwestern town. The head of household, “Jim Dear,” gives his wife “Darling” an American Cocker Spaniel puppy that she names Lady.
Lady enjoys a happy life with the couple and befriends two local neighborhood dogs, Jock, a Scottish terrier, and Trusty, a bloodhound.
Christmas Dog Movies on Netflix
When I originally published this post, there were five movies available. Due to Netflix’s library changing because of contractual expirations, there are only three available now.
A new pack of Pup Star pooches stumbles upon a rival team’s plan to ruin Christmas, then ends up at the North Pole to try and save the holiday spirit. (Watch on Netflix)
The reclusive green Grinch decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. Reluctantly joined by his hapless dog, Max, the Grinch comes down from his mountaintop home and sneaks into town to swipe everything holiday-related from the Whos. (Watch on Netflix)
A grump, with a mean streak, plots to bring Christmas to a halt in the cheerful town of Whoville. But a generous little girl could change his heart. (Watch on Netflix)
