Rating & Content Info
Why is Firehouse Dog rated PG? Firehouse Dog is rated PG by the MPAA for sequences of action peril, some mild crude humor and language.
After a firefighting accident claims the life of his uncle, Shane Fahey is troubled by nightmares. He also lies on occasion, skips school and steals his confiscated electronic game out of his father’s locker. At the station, tensions rise among the firefighters when city officials threaten to close them down. In the course of the movie, an animal falls from a plane, jumps several stories from a burning building and runs into a fire-engulfed hall to rescue an unconscious boy. An arsonist is shown making explosives to start fires. Later he is punched in face by an angry firefighter. After arriving at the station, Dewey (the dog) climbs on the dinner table and defecates in the stew. The script includes brief profanities, some crude jokes and doggie flatulence.
