America's favorite pit bull to star in Animal Planet Christmas special

America’s favorite pit bull saves Christmas this year, so you’ve got to watch this two-hour Christmas special -- "Hercules Saves Christmas." That’s right, Hercules is Santa’s furry little helper and he is going to make sure all the right people make it on the “nice” list.

Star of Animal Planet’s “Pit Boss,” Hercules meets a mischievous 12-year-old orphan, Max Moogle, on the night before Christmas Eve. Hercules uses his clever talking-dog ways to persuade Max into helping him with a rather difficult holiday project that needs fixing in less than two days. Hercules needs help in bringing up the spirits of a sad Scrooge before Christmas, so Hercules makes a deal with Max that he hopes will encourage his help.

Since Hercules is in charge of Santa’s “naughty and nice list,” he promises to save a spot for Max on the “nice list” if he helps him.

Will Max and the Scrooge make it on the “nice” list this year? You’ll have to catch the 6 p.m. world premiere of "Hercules Saves Christmas" on Saturday, December 3 to find out what happens, but you won’t be disappointed. What’s not to love about a sweet Santa paws? After all, our furry friends are our biggest helpers in making every day cheerful, and they make the holidays even more magical.
