As documented in history books but largely forgotten today, the heartwarming CG-animated feature Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is based on the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond between a young Soldier and a stray dog.

Sgt. Stubby An American Hero Stubby Bio Card

For his valorous feats, Stubby is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, and the most decorated dog in American history! Set against the backdrop of America’s entry into World War I, this CG-animated feature shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places.

Opening April 13 and coinciding with the year-long 100th commemoration of the United States’ role in the “War to End All Wars, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero tells the story of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy whose life is forever changed when a little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into a training camp in New Haven, Conn.  Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and the chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.

Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret, Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poilu Soldier Gaston Baptiste, Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage. Rated PG.

    This looks like a great movie. I love anything with a puppy in it. I know my puggy would be a great hero dog.
