Continuing the on-going debut of various short films, which included the zesty knit-ball Purl and last week’s WALL-E-esque Smash and Grab about two antiquated robots, Disney Pixar’s SparkShorts is back with a new emotionally tantalizing film titled Kitbull.

The Rosana Sullivan-directed and Kathryn Hendrickson-produced film revolves around an unlikely connection between a kitten and a pit bull. A stray kitten wanders around a neighborhood to find refuge in a back alley, only to find a kind-hearted pit bull who’s suffered at the hands of its ill-hearted owner. In many senses, the new short showcases the bad reputation pit bulls face and the very reasons that have birthed the negative stereotypes surrounding them — however, there’s still some love in this abused dog’s heart.
