The husband-and-wife team of Art Acord and Louise Lorraine starred in this low-budget but pleasant western comedy which also featured scene-stealing animals and a baby. Acord's dog, Rex, finds the baby abandoned in the mountains. Unfortunately, the nearest town has no orphanage and the rough cowboy is forced to care for the infant himself. A local girl (Lorraine) offers her assistance which is gratefully accepted and the two quickly fall in love. That doesn't sit well with Lorraine's former suitor, Leon Kent, who has Acord arrested for kidnapping. Sprung from jail by Rex and his faithful horse, Black Beauty, Acord manages to convince the sheriff of his innocence. After rescuing Lorraine from a forced marriage to Kent, Acord and his pals can look forward to a more peaceful future. Kent was also known under the name Leon De La Mothe. Pals was produced by poverty row company Truart during one of Acord's many disagreements with his home studio, Universal.
