Description by OLDIES.com:
Kip, an orphan living in the basement of a luxury apartment building with his doorman grandfather, has his life turned upside down by a pair of rambunctious new friends. The first, a stray dog he names Lucky, poses a serious problem - the building doesn't allow dogs! The second, a girl he dubs Button (short for Buttinsky), decides to help him out with his problem. For a while, the kids are able to hide Lucky in the apartment of a vacationing tenant, until a run in with burglars causes some serious property damage. Positive that Lucky's next home is going to be the pound, Kip and Button seek out Jim, the only grownup they trust. A corporal in the Army's K-9 Unit, Jim agrees to help Lucky enlist. The homesick pooch proves difficult to train, but Jim may just make a soldier out of him yet.
