Storyline

SHEPHERD is based on the award-winning and bestselling novel, "The Jewish Dog," by Asher Kravitz. Kaleb, a beloved German Shepherd, is separated from his Jewish family when the Nuremberg Laws are enacted in WWII Berlin. He is adopted by an SS Officer who trains him to attack and round up Jews at a concentration camp. Kaleb is well cared for and good at his job until one day when he is distracted by a familiar scent. His original master, a young boy named Joshua, has arrived as a prisoner of the camp. Kaleb has not lost his loyalty to Joshua who finds solace when he gets a job feeding the animals and can spend time with Kaleb. Joshua's life is at risk. Together they escape the camp and after months of near-death experiences, they are found by partisans who help Joshua make safe passage. Written by Shepherd: the Story of a Jewish Dog

Wow! What a fantastic emotional ride. So rare to have movies take you through such an emotional journey! Was amazed with August Maturo's performance as the little boy who gets taken away first from his family, then from his family dog to be thrown into a concentration camp during World War 2. Full of surprises and a beautiful story of survival, loyalty and the unbreakable connection between a boy and his dog, get your Kleenexes ready and watch this one with no interruptions. 10 out of 10. Highly recommend for all ages 👍👍
