Hachi: A Dog’s Tale never was released in American theaters, but was instead relegated to the Hallmark channel because of how sad the movie is. Richard Gere got the deal of a lifetime when he made a movie all about playing with a cute dog! He doesn’t even really have to act much. Other people are in it too including Jason Alexander and three different dogs. Three different dogs play Hachi in the many stages of this dog’s tale. Also, A Dog’s Tale is way better than the title “A Dog’s Purpose”, because of the excellent pun.
