Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief (also known as Dr. Dolittle 4 or Dr. Dolittle 4: Tail to the Chief) is a 2008 American comedy film, starring Kyla Pratt and Norm Macdonald. Like its predecessor, Dr. Dolittle 3 in 2006, it was released direct to DVD on March 4, 2008. It is the fourth film in the Dr. Dolittle series, and the second film in the series not to feature Eddie Murphy as Doctor Dolittle, or Raven-Symoné as Charisse Dolittle, although Doctor Dolittle (but not Charisse Dolittle) has been mentioned in the film.

Maya Dolittle is the girl who can talk to animals; so can her older sister Charisse Dolittle and father John Dolittle. John is away on animal expeditions while Charisse Dolittle's fate remains unknown. When the President asks for him to help with the Presidential dog and save an African forest, Maya takes her father's place. The dog Daisy has a very hot temper but after a lot of trouble, they begin to get along.

At a dinner with the prince and princess of the kingdom that the forest is located in, things are going well until they suddenly take a turn for the worse. With the help of animals, Maya finds out Chief Dorian was sabotaging the prince to shut down the forest and make millions. He is arrested and the forest is saved.
