Dogs have always been known as "man's best friend," but in the new sci-fi family adventure Robo-Dog, a seemingly ordinary pooch proves to be more helpful than ever. With just one day left until Robo-Dog debuts on DVD and VOD formats January 5, RLJ Entertainment has provided us with an exclusive clip, which shows that Robo-Dog can even help with matters of the heart. This scene shows the title character, voiced by James Arnold Taylor, helping his young master Tyler (Michael Campion) score a date with the girl he likes, Chloe (Tara McDonald).

He sits, plays fetch and he can move at super speed, bark at incredible volume and speak like a human being! He's Robo-Dog, the most amazing mechanical mutt ever invented. Genius scientist Tom Austin (Patrick Muldoon) sees that his son, Tyler, needs a new best friend. He locks himself in the garage, tinkering with spare parts, and creates the most incredible canine the world has ever seen! Meet Robo-Dog, a canine like no other, and the best pet a father could build for his family.
