The film chronicles the dogs themselves, their inspiring stories - their Vicktories - and how they have changed the world for the better. The dogs have dislodged harmful, untrue stereotypes about pit bulls, and about dogs rescued out of fighting. They've proved once and for all that having been forced to fight should not lead to a dog's death sentence.
The Vicktory dogs also gave people hope for their own lives; if these dogs could overcome such horrors, such struggles, then maybe we can make it, too.
"It has been such a privilege to be involved in the lives of these dogs and the families who adopted them. These dogs suffered unimaginable abuse and with time, patience and care learned to trust again," Darcy Dennett, The Champions' director, told The Dodo in an email. "I think it's a remarkably inspirational story that most of us can probably relate to and learn something from."
