Little Dog is the story of lightweight boxer Tommy "Little Dog" Ross, and his haphazard quest for redemption. One fateful night five years ago, Tommy betrayed the boxer's code of conduct during a championship bout against Rico "Havoc" St. George – he dropped his gloves in the middle of a round and quit the fight, dumping a promising career down the drain. Tommy has had to live with the fallout of this decision ever since.
Now Tommy has the chance for a rematch and his family isn't sure what to think. Sure, they all loved lapping up the glory of Tommy's spotlight – but living in the shadow of his humiliating defeat was more than they could bear. If he fights again, will it bring shame or glory? Tommy's mother Sylvia, a failed singer, will prove yet again to be Tommy's true nemesis in his not-quite heroic return to the ruthless world of boxing. Tommy is a broken, would-be champion, trying to survive within an outrageously dysfunctional family. If the training doesn't break him, his scheming relatives certainly will do their damnedest to finish the job.
Five years after walking out on the championship welterweight boxing match with Rico "Havoc" St. George, Tommy "Little Dog" Ross, stemming from a specific incident, decides to mount a comeback. Tommy has to overcome many obstacles for this comeback, many of those obstacles being psychological, including his then girlfriend Pamela eventually changing camp in becoming Rico's wife, and members of his dysfunctional family focusing in their own individual issues which may be in direct competition with Tommy's goals. In the latter item is his father, Lowly Ross Sr., being charged and convicted for attempted manslaughter days before the bout five years ago, he still incarcerated. But there may be some who truly do provide their support that may fuel Tommy's drive to make a better life.
