89 min

They came from the far

corners of the world:

Europe, Australia, America.

All drawn by the lure of

gold, discovered in the hills

of South Africa where big

game roamed in their thousands

and the wildest tales were true.

You get him, you get him champ!

Yes! Yes, you win!

Pull! Pull champ!

Into that world was

born a litter of puppies.

"Shorty you don't think you're gonna Shorty

you don't think you're gonna win do you?"

And one of these pups

stood out from the others,

not by size, because he was the

smallest, and not by beauty either,

because he was an odd

looking little fellow.

You're really silly.

He stood out because of his heart.

His was the biggest, the

bravest heart in all of Africa.

So young and you think

you've got all the answers!

If only life were that simple.

Before our time, man lived

in harmony with animals.

We could communicate and

understand one another.

But man wanted more; Man

wanted control.

You animals will pay the price.

I was on my own for the first time,

and I was in no way prepared for an

adventure such as this. But I was lucky.

I had as my driver

and guide Jim Makokel.

Jim was a proud Zulu warrior.

Come On. It's for us.

- Hey! Get away!

- It's him!

What do you mean? It's the

runt. We need the champion!

Don't look at the size! It's

what's in here... And here!

He was as brave and as

reckless as the day was long.

Jim's affection for the dog, puzzled me,

I didn't understand why because

he was the smallest of the litter.

The pup's mother shared a

special affnity with the

little fellow too.

What's a runt mom?

Oh, where did you hear that?

They were talking about me.

It just means you're small.

It's not how big you are on the

outside. It's how big you are in here.

Your father was the smallest. The

others teased him, called him the runt.

He became the bravest and best of all.

Just believe in yourself and

no one can make you feel small.

I'll try.

There's my big brave boy!

What is it?

You're going with Fitz and Jim.

What do you mean?

We talked about this. They're

leaving in the morning.

So I'm not going.

I don't want you to go,

but it's something we all have to do.

I left my mother and went with Baba,

now it's time for you to leave and

go with Fitz. It's all apart of life.

You just wanna get rid

of me cuz I'm small.

No! Baba chose you first overall

your brothers and sisters.

It's an honour. Pezulu is going too,

he'll watch out for you.

Yeah! I'll take care of you

little buddy. It'll be fun.

We'll see the world! Have

adventures! Get tattoos!


Oh, you're in good hands

puppy. Well actually,

they're wings. Well they kinda look

more like claws, but don't worry;

They don't hurt. They're just feathers!

In fact I can't really pick anything up with them

at all, I usually have to use my feet to grab things...

and ah... well I er... uhoh,

what were we talking about?

Take care of him Pezulu. He

doesn't understand man yet.

Oh well now don't you

worry none. He'll be fine.

Fitz is a good man. Trying to

find his way in the world...

Clumsy as a three legged

warthog, but he means well.

He'll need you.

Come on, I'll introduce

ya. He's gonna love you.

I wanna stay with you.

I'll always love you, but it's

time for you to live your life.

Besides I'll see you in a few months

at Baba's kraal in the mountains.


Now don't you worry! You're

going to see all sorts

of new things, it's gonna be fun.

Hey, you like hens?

It's hard to imagine what it must

of felt like for that little pup.

He was being forced to trade everything
