A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans

A Dog’s Purpose– the # 1 New York Times bestseller– is visiting the big screen! Based upon the beloved successful novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose, from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who discovers the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the people he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Britt Robertson, KJ Apa, John Ortiz, Peggy Lipton, Juliet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Pooch Hall and Dennis Quaid. A Dog’s Purpose is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland, TELEVISION’s Gilmore Girls). The movie from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media will be dispersed by Universal Pictures. Screenplay by W. Bruce Cameron & Cathryn Michon and Audrey Wells and Maya Forbes & Wally Wolodarsky.


Heartwarming, informative, and typically laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog’s Purpose is not only the psychological and funny story of a dog’s many lives, but also a dog’s-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds in between guy and male’s friend. This moving and wonderfully crafted story teaches us that love never ever dies, that our true friends are constantly with us, which every animal in the world is born with a purpose.

Bailey’s story continues in A Dog’s Journey, the captivating New York Times and USA Today bestselling direct follow up to A Dog’s Purpose.
