A Dog’s Journey
A Dog’s Journey begins where A Dog’s Purpose ended, continuing the story of farm dog Bailey, as he finds a new destiny and learns that some friendships transcend lifetimes.
Bailey (voiced by Josh Gad) is living on the Michigan farm of his former owner Ethan, now a man and portrayed by Dennis Quaid. Along with his wife Hannah, and their granddaughter CJ, the family enjoys life on the farm.
When CJ’s mother, Gloria, decides to take CJ away and pursue her dreams while living in the big city, Ethan asks Bailey to watch over CJ, thus begins Bailey’s adventure through multiple lives filled with love, friendship and devotion as he, CJ,and CJ’s best friend Trent experience joy and heartbreak, music and laughter, and few really good belly rubs.
