Wondering which Golden Retriever dog movies you can watch on Disney Plus? Check out this post to find out every title that’s available right now.
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. (I’ve never owned a Golden!)
About Golden Retrievers
According to Rested Paws, “The Golden Retriever is a particularly gorgeous breed of gundog that stems from Scotland. Today, they are rated as some of the most popular dogs in the world, especially in the United States. Born hunters and field workers, they also work well as guide dogs, as search-and-rescue dogs, and as dogs that take part in competitive events.” (Source)
Everyone knows that Disney loves dogs. From the Disney studios own characters Goofy and Pluto to all the characters that starred in their own movies – Bolt, Lady & the Tramp, 101 Dalmations and more.
More specifically, they love Golden Retrievers. Are you familiar with the Buddies series? There’s a section dedicated to these cute canines on the Disney website.
The Air Bud film series (also known as Air Buddies or Disney Buddies) is an American film franchise based on a sports-playing Golden Retriever named Buddy, portrayed by Air Buddy. The franchise began in 1997 with the theatrical release of Air Bud.
The Air Bud story begins with high schooler Josh, who struggles to adapt to his new home in Washington state. That all changes, however, when he signs up to be the school basketball team’s manager and discovers that his pet dog Bud, a stray golden retriever he took in, can play the sport amazingly well. After Bud joins the team, Josh’s life brightens considerably, until the dog’s former owner Norm Snively returns in hopes of reclaiming the pooch.
What are the five Buddies names?
Air Bud is the proud father of five adorable puppies – the hip-hoppin’ B-Dawg, lovely RoseBud, mellow Buddha, dirt-loving MudBud, and the big fella Budderball – with an unbelievable secret: They can talk!
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 Golden Retriever movies on Disney Plus.
