Why is it precisely J. J. Tully who has to track down the two missing chicks Poppy and Sweety? True, he is a former search and rescue dog, but this doesn’t mean that he sets off at once looking for them.
But when Millicent, the chicks‘ mother, promises him a cheeseburger as recompense for his efforts, J. J. can’t no longer resist. The weak track ends in front of the house, where Vince, the unfriendly dachshund, lives. But it gets even worse! Suddenly the third chick, Sugar, is also missing. Now J. J. has no alternative but to train, Dirt, the last chick, as a search and rescue chick to free its siblings from the house. Will that turn out well?
