We want to create a 15-episode webseries about Tugg the bull terrier. 

A little about Tugg: At 4-months-old, Tugg was found wrapped in a blanket and staked down next to the side of the road — on death's door with internal and external infections, three kinds of mange and his eyes swollen shut. He was rescued, and during his recovery, Tugg found out he is also a super hero, inventor of a time machine, pastry chef, artist and doer of good deeds. 

Tugg, has visited kids in school, nursing homes, hospitals and adopted soldiers overseas and helped raise money for breast cancer research, shelter & rescue dogs and fire equipment. He is a frequent guest of the Dallas Cowboys, has done school programs on anti-bullying, self esteem and proper pet care and Tugg just received the 2011 American Kennel Club Award of Canine Excellence - Companion Dog. A prestigious award recognizing his many contributions to the community. In addition, Tugg is the only living dog ever to be inducted into the super hero hall of fame.

What it's about: The series is part live action, and part animation, and follows not only Tugg's daily good deeds, but also his imagined adventures, all the while spreading his message of "never give up, you are great just the way you are. And remember to wuff it forward." From dogs in other dimensions to fending off an attacking horde of stick monsters, Tugg has a grand adventure almost every day of his life. He also has quiet moments of reflections with his elderly neighbor and sometimes picks on his BIG little brother Ajaxx as only a brother would.

The crew:

Tugg - actor and star of the show, Ajaxx - actor, Kareem Ferguson - actor/producer, Chris Sergi - producer, Kim Ovard - writer/costume designer Jeff Altomari - unit manager, Blake Ovard - writer/director, Smithfield Fair (Jan Smith, Dudley-Brian Smith and Bob Smith) - Original theme and background music, Crawford Media Services - videography. (Additional cast and crew will be added once we are through with pre-production)

How the money will be used: The funds we are raising for this project will be used on production of the web series, including animation, sets and miscellaneous production needs. If we raise more than our goal, those funds will be split for any additional production needs and marketing and post production.
