The Beezley’s Animal Shelter is home to many homeless pets, including a dog named Broccoli. Mr. and Mrs. Beezley kindly take care of each of the animals every day. Broccoli can be a handful at times, but the Beezley’s always say that each pet will find a loving owner someday. Broccoli always shows off for people who come in, but sometimes gets himself in to trouble. Broccoli is confined to the backroom after spilling water all over the storefront when Oscar comes to the animal shelter to pick out the dog he has been longing for. In the end, one of Broccoli’s quirks helps Oscar to find him and they are the perfect match.
