A Dog’s Purpose—the #1 New York Times bestseller—is heading to the big screen! Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose, from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Britt Robertson, KJ Apa, John Ortiz, Peggy Lipton, Juliet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Pooch Hall and Dennis Quaid. A Dog’s Purpose is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland, TV’s Gilmore Girls). The film from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media will be distributed by Universal Pictures. Screenplay by W. Bruce Cameron & Cathryn Michon and Audrey Wells and Maya Forbes & Wally Wolodarsky.

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.

Bailey's story continues in A Dog's Journey, the charming New York Times and USA Today bestselling direct sequel to A Dog's Purpose.

A Dog's Purpose
W. Bruce Cameron’s New York Times and USA Today Bestselling book, A Dog’s Purpose is one of the best book's I've ever had the pleasure of reading. In A Dog’s Purpose, the speaker, a dog reincarnated several times, constantly is haunted by one thought: “What is my Purpose?” Throughout its many lives, the dog learns some sort of special skill that will help it resolve its purpose later in the book. Whether it be as little as how to slink in the shadows to as big as tracking scents from long distances, everything the dog learns is significant in one way or another. The dog finally finds its overall Purpose in life, to be there for its one and only love, Ethan. Ethan’s safety and happiness was always the dog’s number one priority, sitting in the back of its mind through all its lives. This book will make you laugh, smile, and cry. You will slowly leave reality and sink into the story. A Dog’s Purpose really captures what it is like to be a dog, living through the perspective of one. I'd recommend this book to anyone with a love for animals, or anyone just looking for an amazing story to read, because not only is the plot fantastic, but the overall writing is professional and incredibly enjoyable. Fair warning, however, if you read this book you may suffer from irreversible symptoms, longing for a dog of your own. W. Bruce Cameron also wrote a bestselling sequel to A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey, where the dog continues through lives on an epic journey worth reading.
Love the book and the movie both great
