"Lassie" type movie
24 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nice, old time family film in B&W that follows a very smart and shrewd stray German Shepard dog which moves from town to town by hopping boxcars and freight trains (like a hobo). The dog saves a farm animal from slaughter, helps a crippled child in the process, and teaches a small farm boy about letting go of possessions.
