He tries to survive the life in the unique environment while meeting up with a trio of other coyotes.

One day, a fire hit town and they are trapped in a culvert. They escape, but are surrounded by the fire. However, the firefighters put out the fire. Meanwhile, Chico finds a female coyote lying on the side of the road and finds out that she has pups. The pups even to see Chico as a father figure and the female decided to use him as their babysitter as she and the other coyotes go hunting. Meanwhile, men are out to capture them.

The next morning, it turns out that the human who set the trap is a rescuer. The rescuer puts Chico in his trunk and drives off with him as the pups sadly watch him leave. Chico arrives at his old home, but he wanted to go back to his new home. He finds a moving truck and hops in, unaware that the truck is headed to New York instead.
