Anita and her new friends are on a mission to bring joy back to the gloomy halls of their new boarding school. But their plans get put on hold when Anita comes across an abandoned Dalmatian puppy in the schoolyard. As her new fluffy roommate becomes less and less of a secret, Anita discovers that a dog is just what her school needs to bring back a little cheer. Until then, resident mean girl, Cruella De Vil, tricks Anita and her friends at every turn and threatens to reveal the puppy to the grumpy Headmistress!
