When Bandit’s trainer is almost captured by the police, he leaves Bandit behind in order to save his own skin. Bandit is sent to the pound where he is adopted by a young boy, Owen, and his recently unemployed and widowed mom.

The Bandit Hound. A new family film comedy.
THE BANDIT HOUND:
Directed by Michelle Danner. Produced by All In Films.
INDIEGOGO PROJECT IS UNDERWAY
Manny’s a canine-whispering bank robber with an odd partner in crime: his smart, eager, mixed-breed dog, Bandit. A fake bomb and a note is all this furry thief needs to pull off heist after heist. But when the police catch up with Manny and his dim-witted heavy William, Bandit stalls the cops just long enough for his master to get away. Unfortunately, that buys Bandit a one-way ticket to the pound. Months later, ten-year-old Owen and his mother Joanne decide to adopt a dog from the local rescue center. Joanne relocated them from the Midwest to the affluent beach community of Santa Monica, California after her husband’s recent death, and feels a dog will help Owen adjust to the tough changes. And Owen instantly falls in love with this scruffy, nameless pooch. But when Joanne loses her job, the adopted dog starts bringing home money. Lots of money. It’s Bandit, trying to do what he does best to make his new family happy.
Owen thinks he’s got the best dog ever, and that they were meant to be together. He starts using the cash Bandit brings home not only to help his mom, but to buy popularity in the neighborhood and win the heart of Susan, his adorable new friend from the other side of the tracks. But after a mysterious armored car robbery makes the news, Manny realizes Bandit is back in business. And he’ll do anything to see his four-footed goldmine returned, even if it means Owen and Joanne have to go. Hilarious, heartwarming and with a dash of thrills, THE BANDIT HOUND is a touching family tale about the choices and sacrifices we make for the ones we love. THE BANDIT HOUND is a family movie that is for both kids and adults. There will be several cameos for dogs. All In Films auditioned over thirty dogs and found the perfect “Bandit” and his love interest “Lula”. “Bandit” has the just right mix of mischievousness and humanity and “Lula” is adorable. The adults are not the only ones to find love, so do the kids and dogs. The actors will create three dimensional characters that will lead to a colorful movie. It’s a family movie with a great story to tell and great demographic for everyone
