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.
