Marley & Me: The Puppy Years is a 2011 American direct-to-DVD comedy film and prequel to Marley & Me (2008). The film was directed by Michael Damian and written by Damian and his wife Janeen Damian. The film was released on DVD on June 1, 2011.
As the title suggests, the film is about Marley in his puppy years. Marley and his new owner Bodi Grogan (Travis Turner) cause trouble at the local dog contest. Unlike the original film however, Marley is given a speaking voice (voiced by Grayson Russell).
