Documented in history books but largely forgotten, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is based on the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond between a young Soldier and a little stray dog on the brink of America’s entry into World War I. For his valorous feats, Stubby is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, the most decorated dog in American history and is widely considered the forerunner to the U.S. Army’s working dog program. This computer-animated feature shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places.
What Makes it Hot Diggity Great:
Beautifully animated and voiced, this is such a heartwarming story about how dogs have such a special place in our lives. The DVD is a compelling and interesting lesson in history as it tells the real-life story of our country's first canine war hero.
