Based on the book by W. Bruce Cameron (A Dog’s Purpose), A DOG’S WAY HOME is a story about the heart-warming relationship between Bella (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard) and her best friend and owner Lucas (Jonah Hauer-King). After being separated from her quaint life with Lucas, Bella must make a 400-mile journey to be reunited with her family.
