Chowder the puppy is living his best life on the McHopern farm with his siblings and his other animal friends. Although the wise old potbelly pig Mr. Wiggles has repeatedly warned little Chowder to make good choices, he never listens and often makes decisions that come with unwelcome consequences. But little does the tiny pup know that his scariest and most dangerous choice is about to come.

When Chowder decides to wiggle through a hole in the farmyard fence one night, he is immediately greeted by a mean coyote who grabs him and runs off into the darkness. Will anyone hear Chowder’s cries for help, and will he ever learn to listen to his elders?
