Dog named Gucci MVD8252DFrom burn victim to rock star, the story of one dog who changed a law and proved justice is a dog’s best friend.

From survivor to rock star, A Dog Named Gucci is the story of a puppy set on fire and the brave man who came to his rescue. But for Doug James saving Gucci was just the beginning. Together they would forge a forever bond of devotion and perseverance and work to change the non-existent animal cruelty laws in their home state, proving that justice is a dog’s best friend.

Director Gorman Bechard was awarded the ASPCA’s National Media Excellence Award at their Humane Award ceremony in November 2015 for his work on A Dog Named Gucci.


“A Dog Named Gucci’ left many in tears with its poignant story. But to the filmmaker’s credit, it was far from manipulating. Director Gorman Bechard was also one that was more interested in an awareness campaign rather than taking the easy route of inflammatory cinema. The ‘Gucci Bill’ changed the laws in Alabama turning animal cruelty into a felony, and starting a wondrous domino effect throughout the nation.” – The Movie Guys
