In this animated feature based on a true story, a stray dog who isn't having luck scrounging for food wanders onto a base where American soldiers are training. He's adopted by the men there, in particular soldier Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman), who warms to the dog's personality and devotion.

Named Stubby for his short tail, the dog winds up in the trenches of France, embarking on a historic adventure by his beloved soldier’s side. There, he shows extraordinary bravery, helping not only the soldiers, but innocent civilians. 

The first canine ever promoted to the rank of Sergeant in U.S. Army history, Sgt. Stubby shows the world the true meaning of dedication, loyalty and bravery.

  • 5 stars "it was great"
  • 5 stars "An excellent family movie. There was no swearing, blood or killing in the movie even though it was based on the First World War. How all movies should be."
  • 5 stars "This animated movie is a refreshing change from Hollywood and Disney. It is great for children to learn about history, and is very entertaining. It delicately handles a difficult period of time in history through the eyes of a little dog who just wants to makes things better."
