A DOG'S PURPOSE is a US comedy drama in which a dog, over the course of several lifetimes and owners, seeks to discover the purpose of its existence.

Threat

Scenes of mild threat include characters being trapped in a burning house and a young kidnap victim being thrown into a fast-flowing river. None of these characters come to any permanent harm.

Theme

There are emotional scenes as some of the dogs that feature in the film pass away. That said, the film has a happy and uplifting ending.

Other issues include a scene of mild violence, brief bloody detail, very mild innuendo and very mild bad language.
