Firehouse Dog is a 2007 family film directed by Todd Holland. Many Hollywood stars have a reputation of being difficult to please and sometimes making absurd requests. Apparently in Hollywood, this type of behavior goes for famous dogs as well. Rex is a star, of the canine persuasion, who is well-known for his athletic abilities. When a movie shoot stunt goes terribly wrong, Rex is assumed dead. However, Rex is very much alive and wandering the streets as an average looking stray. A wild series of events leads Rex to a fire station where a crew, known as Dogpatch 55, take a liking to Rex and let him stick around. The fireman also renames him Dewy. After years of pretending to act like a hero in movies, Rex/Dewy may get the opportunity to be a hero for real. But is Rex/Dewy up to the job, or is he simply a Hollywood illusion?
