What’s it about?

Chloe is a rich and fancy lapdog with a diamond collar and expensive clothes. When her owner Aunt Viv goes on holiday, Viv’s niece Rachel takes care of Chloe. Chloe and Rachel do not like each other and Chloe is forced to go to Mexico with Rachel and her friends. In Mexico, Chloe is ‘dognapped’ by some dog-fighters. With the help of her new friend, Delgado the German Shepard, Chloe must escape and find her way home.

What to look out for

  • There is cruelty to animals when the dog-fighting dogs are kept in cages and forced to fight each other
  • During Chloe’s journey home, she and Delgado are threatened by scary mountain lions
  • Delgado’s human keeper is attacked by a fighting dog
