Air Bud, also known as Buddy, is the main protagonist in the Air Bud series. He plays a different sport in each film (basketball, football, soccer, baseball and volleyball, respectively). In the third film, he becomes the father of five puppies: Budderball, B-Dawg, Buddha, MudBud and RoseBud, though none of them are given actual names until the first Air Buddies movie. Air Bud only appeared in the first two films of those series.
