Maggie Allen hates being a delivery driver, but she can’t leave her small town to find a better job; her father’s too sick to take care of himself, her younger brother Jake can’t stay out of trouble, and her nagging aunt won’t stop meddling in their lives.
The last thing she needs is a dog to take care of. Especially one that’s spend most of his life chained up by neglectful owners.
But when Dad goes behind her back to adopt a pit bull named Cappuccino, she has to admit that the dog is good for the family — Dad’s tackling physical therapy with new determination, and Jake’s been helping out more. Despite the messes he makes, Maggie’s fond of the eager-to-please dog.
Her luck can’t last, though. In his enthusiasm to please, Cap accidentally disconnects Dad’s oxygen, convincing Aunt Josephine that Maggie can’t do anything right. Can Cap keep Maggie sane —and the whole family safe — when Josephine moves in and turns the chaos up to 10?
