Dog Gone on Netflix: Plot, trailer, what to anticipate, and further information
Netflix released the official trailer for the film on December 13, 2022, and it shows the dog’s interaction with the two main people. The dog’s name is Gonker, and the father teaches him how to retrieve a stick in the trailer. The clip depicts the family bonding with the puppy and spending time with him. However, when the dog goes missing in the second part of the clip, the father and son are horrified.
They decide to hike the Appalachian Trail to locate their beloved pet and encounter a variety of individuals along the way. The media quickly learns about the hunt and attempts to cover the story. Overall, the teaser has a friendly, positive tone that fans of Marley & Me and Hachi: A Dog’s Tale will like. Along with the teaser, Netflix posted a brief summary of the film on their YouTube page, stating:
“A young guy and his father go out on the Appalachian Trail in a frantic quest for their beloved dog Gonker before it’s too late. Dog Gone, based on an astonishing real tale, is the new year’s adventure film, available exclusively on Netflix on January 13.”
Fans should anticipate an emotional drama that examines the beauty of humans’ connection with dogs based on the trailer and narrative. Because it lacks the evident sentimentality that many dog movies offer, audiences should anticipate a playful encounter. Stephen Herek, the film’s director, has directed various series and films, including Afterlife of the Party, The Great Gilly Hopkins, and MacGyver, to mention a few.
