Bounder the Rescue Dog by Puppets in Performance
“Bounder the Rescue Dog” is a light-hearted 40-minute puppet comedy. Kyle is a hyperactive boy, and his mother is having a hard time getting him to calm down. Bounder is a street dog, abandoned by his family. When these two find each other, they learn about love and loyalty. Appropriate for all ages, the show contains humor, action, and original songs.
