Clip and Contest: Shelby, a Magical Holiday Tail

Posted on November 2, 2015 at 8:00 am

New from Anchor Bay! “Shelby, A Magical Holiday Tail,” the Dove®-family-approved movie for all ages, arrives on Digital HD Oct. 23 and on DVD and On Demand Nov. 3, 2015. Rescue dog Shelby (voice of Rob Schneider) manages to escape the dog pound on Christmas Eve and runs straight into the arms of a young aspiring magician named Jake (John Paul Ruttan) and the two are immediately inseparable. The only thing standing between them and a perfect Christmas is the notorious local dogcatcher played by Tom Arnold. He has Shelby in his sights and he’s not going to stop until he finds him. The film also stars the legendary comedian Chevy Chase (“Vacation” series, “Community”) and Addison Holley (“Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,“ “Little Charmers”). Can some Christmas magic save the day?

I have a copy to give away! Send me an email at with Shelby in the subject line and tell me your favorite pet. Don’t forget your address! (US addresses only) I will pick a winner at random on November 10, 2015. Good luck!
