J. Carrol Naish,
One Friday afternoon, young Davy Allen discovers that a dog, Buck, is badly wounded around the neck because of the collar he is forced to wear by his owner, Mr. Thornycroft. When Buck comes through the yard's fence, Davy removes the collar. Even though Davy tells the dog to stay in his owner's yard, Buck follows him home anyway. Along the way, he greets Squire Kirby, the circuit magistrate, who is driving his buggy to town. When Davy gets home, he tells his mother he doesn't know whose dog Buck is, and she allows Davy to keep him. On Monday morning, Mr. Thornycroft comes to the Allen house and accuses Davy of stealing his dog. Davy refuses to give up Buck and even threatens Thornycroft with a rock. Later that day the sheriff advises Davy and his mother that Thornycroft has sworn out a warrant, and they are to appear before the magistrate the next day. After hearing the evidence, Squire Kirby tells Thornycroft that in addition to being the circuit magistrate, he is the local president ... Written by

Both Technicolor and black & white "reissue" prints of this title were made. UCLA has a color copy in their vaults. For many years, the one frequently seen on Turner Classic Movies was the black & white version, but a mint-Technicolor print began airing in 2015. See more »
A sweet and sentimental sugary tale of a boy and his dog...
A BOY AND HIS DOG suffers from being nothing more than a short tale about a boy who sets free a dog being cruelly treated by a neighborhood man (RUSSEL SIMPSON). When the man tries to reclaim his dog, there's a trial at which the country judge (HARRY DAVENPORT) decides in favor of the boy as the new owner of the mistreated animal. That's it.
Strangely enough, this is directed by LeRoy Prinz, who later became the dance director for many a Warner film. And the boy is played by BILLY SHEFFIELD, who looks like he would have made a good Tom Sawyer except his acting skills are unremarkable. He's the brother of Tarzan's Johnny Sheffield. DOROTHY ADAMS lends some warmth to the tale with her portrait of the boy's sympathetic mother.
But it's a sugary confection, easily forgotten.
