Gordon Smith, (David Arquette) is an offbeat mailman who has never met a dog he couldn't handle. When he offers to baby-sit James (Angus Jones), the young son of his beautiful neighbor Stephanie (Leslie Bibb), he's hoping she'll return his romantic interest. A hard working single mom, Stephanie thinks Gordon is just an overgrown kid himself but circumstances force her to leave James with him, temporarily, while she is away on business.
Meanwhile in another part of town, an FBI agent named Murdoch, (Clarke Duncan) is trying desperately to find his runaway canine partner, Agent Eleven (Bob) who has escaped from protective custody. Thanks to the super dog's drug detecting abilities, he has incurred the wrath of local mobster kingpin Sonny Talia (Paul Sorvino) who has put out a contract on the four footed fed.
Pursued by Talia's two inept henchmen Gino (Joe Viterelli) and Arliss (Steve Schirripa), Agent Eleven outwits them and seeks refuge in Gordon's mail truck, where he is promptly adopted by James, who names him "Spot."
Meanwhile Stephanie is having her own set of unbelievable adventures trying to get back home, thanks to a freak snowstorm.
Spot appears to be nothing but trouble but Gordon finds that both James and Spot are beginning to grow on him. When the mobsters catch up to them at the local pet store, all hell breaks lose. As the fur, fish and feathers start to fly, Spot finally gets to show his true colors.
By the time Stephanie returns home to her son she finds Gordon remarkably transformed and Agent Murdoch has shown up to reclaim his dog. The final decision is up to Spot but the lives he has touched will never be the same.
