Nickelodeon USA To Premiere New Original Movie "Rufus" In January 2016

Nickelodeon USA has announced the PAWsome news on their recently launched official "Rufus" website that Nick USA will premiere the brand-new Nickelodeon Original Movie "Rufus" in January 2016!

What if your dog became a dude? Manny is about to live the tail! In Nickelodeon's brand-new original television movie, Manny has moved to a new school, and is finding it hard to fit in. After wishing he had more friends, Manny finds a mysterious collar and puts it on his loyal dog, Rufus. Suddenly, Rufus is magically transformed into a real boy! Manny's not sure what to do, so he enrolls Rufus in school. Quickly, Manny learns that having a dog-turned-dude by your side is pretty awesome, but it's no walk in the park, either. When the other students notice Rufus's silly dog antics - chasing squirrels, eating without utensils, asking for belly rubs, and catching soccer balls and flying discs with his mouth - he immediately earns school-wide pup-ularity. Manny is jealous of his new best friend but eventually leans that a dog's loyalty to his owner always comes first. "Rufus", formally titled "Manny's Best Friend", stars Jace Norman ("Henry Danger", "Splitting Adam"), Haley Tju ("Bella and the Bulldogs") and Curtis Albright ("Liar, Liar, Vampire").'s official "Rufus" website features information about Nick's all-new film, a exclusive sneak-peek video clip titled "Walk to School" character bios for Rufus, Manny and Paige, and Nickelodeon's official "Rufus" message board/forum, where fans can talk about Nick's new movie!
