The film tells the story of a German shepherd named Charlie B. Barkin (voice by Creator/BurtReynolds), a roguish German shepherd [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold con man "with the heart of a marshmallow."]] After breaking out of the local dog pound, Charlie confronts his business partner, an unscrupulous gangster named Carface Carruthers (voice by Vic Tayback in his second-to-last role) to work out an agreement that'll let the two of them split their profits 50/50 so Charlie can start his own business without giving Carface's a bad name. Carface, who got Charlie sent to the pound in the first place and it looking to do away with him permanently, takes him out for a celebration to get him drunk before murdering him via vehicular manslaughter (dog-slaughter?).

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Charlie and Itchy are a tragic version of this. The only reason Itchy goes through with Charlie's crazy, life-threatening schemes is because of how much he loves his best friend.

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Charlie and Itchy are Itchy, as portrayed by ''actual'' heterosexual life partners Creator/BurtReynolds and Creator/DomDeLuise. In a surprisingly tragic version of this. The take on this concept, Itchy's WhatTheHellHero moment is all about how his love for his best friend is the only reason Itchy he goes through with Charlie's crazy, life-threatening crazy schemes is because of how much he loves his best friend.which ultimately kills Charlie and almost kills him.

Added DiffLines:

* AMFMCharacterization: When Charlie meets up with Carface after escaping from the pound, Charlie turns on the radio so he can listen to some jazz while they talk, while Carface turns it off so they can just talk business. They go back and forth until Carface has enough and pulls out the knob to turn off the radio for good.

* KarmaHoudini: ''Plot relevant!'' As the heavenly angel says, all dogs go to heaven because, unlike humans, they're naturally good, loyal and kind. The heavenly whippet can't find ''a single redeeming quality'' about him while looking over his life. Even Carface--murdering, kidnapping, horrible Carface--ends up there at the end. However, there's a catch: if you try to go back to Earth, you ''don't'' get back in to heaven automatically.[[note]]Amazingly, this was one of the ''only'' plot elements that carried over into the sequel: Carface returns to Earth to do dirty business and is dragged to hell by the end (although that had more to do with selling his soul).[[/note]]

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: A somewhat tragic version of this, Itchy ''begs'' Charlie at the beginning not to go through with this harebrained revenge scheme and start fresh somewhere else. He brings it up again when Carface tracks him down, tries to kill him and burns down their new casino.

* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Cousins Annabelle and Belladonna could easily pass for sisters. It doesn't help that [[ActingForTwo they share the same actress]].
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Belladonna. Fans of the series tend to consider her [[EnsembleDarkHorse the best (if not only good) thing about it]].

* OffModel: The show was very obviously made on a much smaller budget than the movie, and it shows. Proportions changes from shot to shot, the dog characters' front paws rapidly alternate between realistic paws and human hands, certain shots are animated with very obvious RingAroundTheCollar and there are a handful of shots where characters are completely static. To say nothing of the frequent perspective wonks done to make the animation easier. The Christmas Special amends much of this, as it was given a slightly bigger budget.
