I hope I don't come across as harsh, but this edit feels like a missed opportunity. What it amounts to is an episode of Futurama cut down to 15 minutes, and it seems like it's just been done for the sake of keeping to a set runtime, rather than in creating a new spin on the material. The result is something that is pretty much the same as the source, only rushed and choppy in parts.

The episode cuts back and forth between past and present, so it seems to me that the material could have been rearranged chronologically, and footage from the Futurama pilot could have been utilised to present the narrative in a different way. It could even have maybe been presented as a very short edit exclusively from the dog's perspective, and maybe a little bit of future footage at the end to wrap up the narrative. In its current form, it doesn't really stand apart much from the original beyond a slightly shorter runtime. I noticed a number of transitions as well.
