All of his life, Trouble has been treated to the best of everything by his elderly owner, MRS. VANDERWHOOZIE. When she passes away, she leaves her enormous fortune to her beloved canine companion and entrusts him to the care of her only relatives, NORBERT and CLAIRE. But the greedy siblings ignore Trouble as they make plans to sell off their aunt’s valuables, and in the commotion, he gets packed away and shipped off with the estate-sale items.
Unable to find his way back to the Vanderwhoozie mansion, Trouble is lost and alone for the first time in his life. A night sleeping in the woods leaves him cold, hungry and harassed by a gang of dancing squirrels, so the little dog makes his way to the big city, where a streetwise pit bull named ROUSEY grudgingly shows him the ropes.
