In the summer holidays, a game of backyard cricket brings the whole neighbourhood together, and no one loves the game more than Arlo the dog. He's the fastest fielder there is, but there's a big problem: he never gives up the ball! Forced to watch from the sidelines, Arlo is determined to get back on the team - he just needs to prove that he is a great cricketer after all. THE 12th DOG captures the joy of backyard cricket and the hilarity of owning a dog.
