Puppy is an upcoming short film that will be attached to the home release of Despicable Me 2.
Dave, seeing many owners walk their dogs, wants a puppy of his own. He tries to leash Kyle, a squirrel, a pigeon, and a ladybug, but fails each time. A miniature UFO then appears and abducts the ladybug. Dave, enamored by the strange being, convinces the UFO to become his puppy with a few cheeseballs. He trains it and the two become really close.
One night, as Dave and the UFO are watching a movie with Gru and his family, the UFO blows up the TV after seeing another UFO in the movie being attacked. After Gru kicks them out, Dave and the UFO star-gaze and the machine suggests it misses its home in the stars. Dave manages to e-mail the UFO's fellow peers and they arrive at Gru's backyard. Although both Dave and the UFO are sad, the Minion's pet leaves one final gift - it enlarges the ladybug it "abducted" earlier.
- When Dave and the UFO stargaze, the UFO first projects a part of Ursa Major.
- The song that plays during the bonding montage is Hanson's hit song "Mmmbop".
- This short film is the first work to feature extra-terrestials in the main Despicable Me universe.
- The UFO is from Sirius, as shown by Dave's email to the "puppy's" home.
