The world can always use more adorable canine content, and Netflix is here to fetch it for you.

On March 16 the world will reunite with dog darling Benji thanks to the beloved streaming service.

First debuting on the big screen in 1974, Benji, a small, scruffy dog with a big heart, instantly won over animal lovers with his sweet face and heroic nature. From there, the titular character went on to headline several more films in the ’70s and ’80s.

Netflix’s new take on Benji finds the mutt working to heal a broken family with two young children on the brink of danger. The film is directed by Brandon Camp, son of Joe Camp, the creator of the canine character and director of the first Benji film.
