Aspiring veterinarian Maya Dolittle (Kyla Pratt) gets caught up in the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood scene after using her special skills as a "dog whisperer" to help a celebrity starlet's depressed Chihuahua. All Maya ever wanted to do was help animals. Mata's veterinarian ambitions get unexpectedly sidelined, however, when she's summoned to Hollywood by heiress Tiffany Monaco (Tegan Moss) and offered her own reality television series. But just as Maya prepares to put her higher education on hold, her loyal four-legged friend Lucky helps her to realize that Tiffany's idea of "helping" animals isn't doing the critters on her show any good. Before long, Maya realizes that fame is fleeting, and the only thing that will make her truly happy is to leave Hollywood behind, and dedicate her life to helping all of her furry little friends.
