COMMENTS: Complex and mature themes presented in an animation context exploring the abuse of power, survival, teamwork, anti-dog movements, dog flu outbreaks, courage, heroism, faith, conspiracy, protection of dogs, deportation, experimentation, commitment, deceit, relationships that are treated sensitively and are suitable for adults and tween viewers. The themes carry a sense of threat and menace and although they are fantastical, some might be disturbing, confusing and distressing to the younger viewers as they do not yet have the ability to distinguish between what is real and unrealistic. Therefore, a 10-12PG rating would be suitable as parental guidance would assist younger viewers in making sense of some of the themes and in recognizing the context and providing reassurance.
