See Spot Run WOOf! 2001 (G)

How can you not like a movie with dogs? Easy, put David Arquette in it. Spot, an FBItrained dog, has a contract on his life after removing “one of the family jewels” of crime family boss Sonny Talia (Sorvino) and ends up in a doggie witness protection program. He lands in the possession of James (Jones), his mother (Bibb), and babysitter neighbor Gordon (Arquette). One may find the true essence of the movie in the middle of a large pile of Spot's morning business, where Gordon eventually finds himself. More scatological humor and other crass gags send “Spot” to the doghouse. Duncan is the sole high point as the dog's FBI handler. 97m/C VHS, DVD . US David Arquette, Michael Clarke Duncan, Leslie Bibb, Angus T. Jones, Joe (Johnny) Viterelli, Paul Sorvino, Anthony Anderson; D: John Whitesell; W: George Gallo, Dan Baron, Chris Faber; C: John Bartley; M: John Debney.
