Storyline

Skeeter has found this dog and discovers no one knows what kind of dog it is. Discussing the matter with his uncle the desire to keep and train the dog for bird hunting after finding the dog has super senseing ability but does not bark. He "yoddles" or laughs as some would say. However the real owner William Hoppers character wants him back due to the rarity of the breed. A very sensitive and moving film especially for fans of Walter Brennan and any dog lover. Written by Merv Denman <mervdenman65@msn.com>

Beautiful movie about love, friendship and loyalty.
25 December 2010 | by (Honduras) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with my father when I was a kid, of course we loved the movie. In Spanish the title was Inseparables. I have been looking for this movie for several years, finally my daughter found it on internet and ordered it for me as a Xmas present. We watched it today and I could remember just about everything in the movie. I am a little confused, I remember when I saw the movie many years ago, Lady returns to Skeeter and Uncle Jesse, but the owner comes back to get her. He takes her away again, but this time she does not return. This did not happen in the movie that we saw today. Am I mistaken? Did the movie have an alternative ending? Any clarification to this will be greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the movie so much and it brought wonderful memories of my dear father.
