Here comes Hooper, one plucky, spunky dog whose warm spirit and goofy personality are irresistible.

Based on a true story.

Jane Paley has enjoyed a career as a writer and independent documentary producer. As a partner in Paley-Price Productions, she wrote and produced numerous family-oriented programs for HBO, and PBS among others.
