A lovable dog, Bandit, is trained to pull off bank robberies, but after a heist gone wrong he’s rescued by a single mom and her son.

Bandit

The Bandit Hound is a funny and heartwarming tale about a lovable little dog, Bandit, who is taught to rob banks by a dog whisperer gone awry. 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. As the friendship between young Owen and Bandit grows, the former nefarious trainer suddenly reappears and tries to steal Bandit back. What follows is a hilarious and heroic adventure, with lots of cute kids, delightful dogs, romance and fun!

 It's become almost impossible for the small independent movie with heart and humanity to get made. Studios certainly aren't financing them, not enough profit. Even the smaller financing companies are too afraid to take a risk on a movie that doesn't have something blowing up or lots of people getting hurt. Thanks to Kick Starter and caring and generous movie goers like you, we can keep the tradition of the smaller budget provocative and poignant indie film alive.

  The Bandit Hound is a film that will appeal to both kids and adults.  It shares a wonderful message about loving and adopting dogs.  The Bandit Hound illustrates that love is what matters, not money.  

  With your support we can bring this loving and light hearted tail to the screen.  Please view the list of rewards we are offering for your contribution.  From Paw-tographed movie posters, to lunching with the cast, walk on acting roles and even Associate Producer credit, there's something to appeal to all.  Most importantly will be the satisfaction of being a part of the team bringing you this heartwarming, dog loving, belly laughing, feel good movie!

 We shot one day of footage on the Alexa camera to capture the holiday spirit for the movie:
