Bailey is wholly the responsibility of Ethan – who feeds, walks and trains his puppy, as well as teaches him unforgettable tricks along the way. As Ethan becomes a teenager (KJ Apa) , he finds his first romantic love in the charming and caring Hannah (Tomorrowland's Britt Robertson), while remaining inseparable with his faithful Bailey.
Fresh off of a football career-ending injury and a devastating breakup with Hannah, Ethan heads to college to begin his next chapter. Unable to bring Bailey with him, he has to leave his trusty companion at home. While away at school, the aging Bailey becomes sick, and Ethan makes it to the veterinarian just in time for their final goodbye. Ethan is inconsolable.
Just as we think that is the end of their bond...Bailey is reborn in the body of Ellie, a German Shepherd K-9 first responder with the Chicago Police Department. Indeed, no one is more surprised at this turn of events than the wiggly puppy who knows he is still Ethan's best friend. The audience next meets reincarnations of Bailey as a Corgi named Tino, then an Australian Shepherd/St. Bernard mix named Buddy.
Joining the talented cast of A Dog's Purpose are Dennis Quaid and Peggy Lipton as Ethan and Hannah as adults; John Ortiz as Carlos, Ellie's police officer owner; Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Maya, Tino's human; Pooch Hall as Al, Maya's love interest; and Nicole Laplaca and Primo Allon as Wendi and Victor, Buddy's neglectful owners, whose carelessness will ultimately lead our hero home.
Director Lasse Hallstrom, A Dog's Purpose is adapted for the screen by Cameron & Cathryn Michon (Muffin Top: A Love Story) and Audrey Wells (Shall We Dance) and Maya Forbes (Infinitely Polar Bear) & Wally Wolodarsky (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days).

“All the songs in the album tackle about love. I think I’ve experienced all the situations in love and relationships. For instance, I was in love with someone even if I knew he didn’t love me back or nagpakita naman sa ‘kin na gusto ako but after several months, hindi na. Pero ‘pag nagkikita kami sa ABS bumabalik (yung feelings ko), hahaha! Ganun. Pero naka-get-over naman ako. That’s why I’m also dedicating the album to myself,” quipped the Kapamilya singer.
“Ang sarap kayang ma-in-love,” she said further, admitting that some of her past relationships were with non-showbiz guys. “Mahilig talaga akong magmahal ng sobra pero hindi ko alam sa kanila (laughs). It’s the best feeling in the world when you’re in love. That’s why it’s so easy for me to compose a song about love.”
The 10-track album features mostly originals including one of her compositions Para Bang Para Lang, which she dedicates to her adoptive mom. “It’s my way of thanking Mama Bob for all the 27 years of loving me and treating me like her own daughter. I’m so lucky for having her in my life.”
Completing the track list are At Ang Hirap (composed by Yeng Constantino, which chronicles the struggles of coping with a fresh break-up); Paano Ba Ang Huwag Kang Mahalin narrates the pain of letting go; Di Na Tayo, another Yeng composition; Parang Tayo Pero Hindi (Angeline’s duet with Michael Pangilinan); Para Bang Para Lang acoustic remix; Awit ng Pag-ibig and Ang Pag-ibig Ko’y Ikaw are both declarations of love; and the covers of Jeremiah’s Nanghihinayang and the sweeping ballad Kailangan Kita.
Producer Jonathan Manalo said: “This kind of songs is very relatable because we all know that most Filipinos are hopeless romantic.”
