When all of the other puppies are homed, Harvey is told that he's to be sent to a working farm with a cruel owner, in exchange for an old tractor. Terrified of what lies in store, he escapes...and is found by Millie Baker and her Dad at the allotments. Falling in love with Harvey, Millie enters him into a puppy competition - little does she know that the grumpy farmer is going to be there too!. Is Harvey safe with the Bakers? Will he ever escape the grumpy farmer? Can he win the competition?
