It is business as usual down at the Digby, Wisconsin, fire house until the day that eight-year-old Matty, the fire dog, gives birth to seven beautiful puppies.Six of the puppies are perfect in every way, but the seventh has a bad leg. As the chief says, "That poor old dog. It looks like he's got a bad digit." And that's how Digit got his name.
But that's only the beginning of Digit the Dalmatian's story. He ignores his disability and goes on to save his mother and a litter of orphaned puppies from a burning building, proving that no one is too small to be a hero.
