Storyline

During World War II, a young boy and girl, living with their respective families in an apartment house that had restrictions against pets, adopt a lost dog and hide it in a vacant apartment, which may have been the only vacant apartment in the United States at the time this movie was being filmed. A burglar breaks in and the apartment is damaged when the dog and crook have a tussle. This blows the dog's cover, but the kids enlist him in the K-9 Corps, and the dog distinguishes himself in the WWII Italian campaign. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Entertaining story about a city dog!
19 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A boy and girl find a dog named Lucky. They live in an apartment building where dogs aren't allowed. The dog becomes a hero in chasing off burglars. The dog gets places to be a service dog in the military. This film was taken at the end of World War II. The soldier befriends the kids and the dog. This film is likable viewing with a solid cast of actors. This film is sweet without being sentimental. While I don't recognize the cast members, the film holds up even over time. While it might seem dated, the film can hold up for today's audiences. It needs to be given a chance to be seen. These days, films like this are rarely viewed on television.
