Synopsis:

When a family sets out to see America, they mistakenly leave behind their lovable puppy, Casey, at a rest stop in Arizona. Join Casey as she comes across Pepé, a Mexican prairie dog, and experiences the mystery and magic of the Arizona desert. During her exciting adventure, Casey meets a collection of exceptional animals, such as the sweet, yet dangerous, Snake, the adorable three little Javelinas, the tenacious Turtle and the rambunctious Rabbit.
