Santa Buddies: The Search for Santa Paws

In the tradition of Disney's classic holiday tales comes a heartwarming movie about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas. Discover how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began in the inspiring original film, The Search For Santa Paws.

When Santa and his new best friend, Paws, discover that the boys and girls of the world have lost the spirit of the season, they take a trip to New York City. But after Santa loses his memory, it's up to Paws, a faithful orphan named Quinn (America's Got Talent's Kaitlyn Maher), her new friend Will (The Game Plan's Madison Pettis) and a wonderful group of magical talking dogs to save St. Nick and show the world what Christmas is really all about.

I eagerly anticipated this movie and it did not disappoint. It was by far my favorite of the "Buddies" movies.

The story was, in a word, adorable. I loved the dogS, I loved the little girls and I really loved all the musical numbers. I literally cried at a few spots (including when Santa lost his memory! SOB!). A small word of warning...some of the scenes are really sad and some parts of it might be a tad scary for smaller viewers.

This movie is a prequel to the 2009 movie The Legend of Santa Paws, which I also loved, but you can watch this movie having not seen the first and still know the story. It was very uplifting and I loved seeing how things turned out at the end (and I did cry! Sobby McGee!).

The Bonus features were really cute. I love deleted scenes and the music video and sing-along were really cute.

You'll love this movie! If you want something a little out-of-the ordinary, sweet and heartwarming, this one is for you. We're watching it AGAIN tonight!
