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.

Did You Know?
After Skeeter (Brandon De Wilde) has placed Lady in the cage in the back of the pickup, Skeeter closes the tailgate and the pickup immediately drives away. This pickup is from a time when the tailgate was held shut by hooks on each side that are held in place on the ends of chains. To close the tailgate it was necessary to put those hooks in place or the tailgate would fall open. Skeeter had no time, and had made no effort to use these hooks. See more
