The film is about a young woman named Sarah, whose life changes when her grandmother bequeaths her prized possession, a spoilt Pug named Patrick.
Sarah recently moved into a new apartment with a no-pet policy and just got employed teaching year 11 English.
She struggles to deal with both Patrick and discipline in her school. After a few incidents with Patrick, she finally connects with the students and really starts to connect with Patrick.
Patrick helps her to meet two potential love interests, one is a narcissistic vet and the other is a student’s father, Ben.
She loses Patrick, but then finds him waiting for her at the end of a 5km charity run (where she raised £1,000 for a mobility scooter).
In the closing scenes, Sarah and Ben sail a boat down a river with Ben’s daughter on deck.
