Poco... Little Dog Lost is a 1977 American independent family adventure drama film about a young girl, Kim (Michelle Ashburn), and her dog, Poco.

Plot

Early in the film, both Kim and her mother are injured in a car accident. An emergency medical crew arrives to help them and bring them to the hospital. But Kim's dog, Poco, gets spooked during the commotion and runs off into the desert.

Lost in the dangerous wilds, Poco treks across the wilderness in search of Kim. As Kim recovers, she searches for Poco as well.

Poco has several adventures as he makes his way through scenic, diverse, and occasionally treacherous California terrain, from the high desert, the Sierra Nevada mountains, a ghost town, and a romp through Yosemite National Park. The dog also has several encounters along the way, including a kind old gas station owner (John Steadman) and a benevolent gold prospector (Chill Wills), as well as a few other animal friends, all of whom help Poco on his journey home.
