Jack is a Border Collie pup when we meet him. He lives on a ranch and his greatest wish is for the day to come when Bob, the man on the ranch, calls him to the truck to go herd sheep with his father. That day comes and Jack has his chance. Then, fate turns against him and fire destroys much of the ranch. The pups have to be sold. Jack ends up in a pet store and from there he goes from one connection to another searching for a true home. Some owners are loving and caring and others are cruel and abusive.
