Stepdog is the hilarious and heartwarming tale of a woman (Mia) who has finally met the man of her dreams—and the dog of her nightmares… As time goes on, a full-on war ensues. . . [and] the house [is divided] into dog- and wife-territories. . . But in the end, it’s clear that not even a wife can come between man and dog. As the stepdog ages, Mia softens, and as with any new family struggling to blend, the two must make peace with each other.
