Plot and cast

Fran Garrison (Suzanne Pleshette) loves her dachshund Danke and the dog's three puppies. One day, her husband Mark (Dean Jones) brings home a Great Dane puppy—the gift of veterinarian Dr. Pruitt (Charlie Ruggles)—and Mark names the dog Brutus. The dog grows up with Fran's dachshund puppies believing he is one of them. The dachshunds are mischievous creatures and lead Brutus through a series of comic misadventures with a policeman being chased up a tree, Mark's studio being splattered with paint, and a garden party being turned topsy-turvy. Fran wants Mark to remove Brutus from the house once-and-for-all but when Brutus saves her favorite puppy Chloe she changes her mind. Mark and Fran enter their dogs in a dog show with Brutus meeting others of his breed. He finally learns to be a Great Dane. Cast includes Kelly Thordsen as Officer Carmody, Parley Baer as Mel Chadwick, Robert Kino as Mr. Toyama, Mako as Kenji, and Charles Lane as a Judge.
