* LightEqualsHope: After a series of events that end up in Bobby losing sight of the girl, he is at his lowest and collapses crying inside a tunnel. Then the Dobermann shows up at one end of the tunnel, with the streetlights behind him. He makes Bobby pucker up and takes him to the girl.


* CanineCompanion: Nothing will stop the Dobermann from being with the girl. Not trains, not the pound, not Bobby's distaste for him, and certainly not the fact that Bobby takes the girl to the other side of the country while escaping Cissy, while leaving the dog behind.

''Eyes Of An Angel'' is a 1991 movie starring JohnTravolta. That is, a movie from the moot point of his career. But the real star is arguably the Dobberman Pinscher that the movie focuses on.

Travolta plays a down-on-his-luck guy named Bobby, who works hard (with gangsters) to earn a living for both himself and his sort-of adoptive daughter. [[NoNameGiven Said daughter]] finds the aforementioned dog, who's in bad shape due to injuries sustained during a dog fight and being thrown into a river by [[{{Jerkass}} its owner]], and cares for it until it's fully recovered. The dog eventually begins following her home. However, Bobby won't have any of it, as he's gotten in trouble with gang leader Cissy, and both father and daughter have to run away from Chicago to California. The dog follows them.
