Ella and Caleb have always wanted a dog, but their parents have strict rules about adopting patients at their animal center. When a border collie and her puppies are brought in for their shots, Ella is immediately smitten with the most rambunctious pup of the litter, Holly. The pups are already sold and are awaiting placement with their adoptive families, but when Ella meets Holly’s new owners, she is very concerned that they might not be a suitable family. As Christmas rolls around, Ella is surprised to find Holly abandoned on her porch with kennel cough. When Ella investigates further she finds that Holly is not the only dog in danger. As the adoptive family realizes their mistakes, Ella gets the joy of a lifetime: a puppy for Christmas.
