Storyline

With the war to end all wars looming, a young army "doughboy" Robert Conroy has his life forever changed when a little dog with a stubby tail wanders into camp as the men of the 102nd Infantry Regiment train on the grounds of Yale University. Conroy gives his new friend a name, a family, and a chance to embark on the adventure that would define a century. Despite lacking formal military working dog training, Stubby the dog and his human companions find themselves in the trenches of France and on the path to history. French Infantryman Gaston Baptiste befriends the duo and accompanies them along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage. For his valorous actions, Stubby is recognized as the first canine ever promoted to the rank of Sergeant in U.S. Army history.

Trivia

The idea of an animated film was born while researching a documentary series for public television tied to the WWI centennial. When the story of Sgt. Stubby emerged, writer/director Richard Lanni realized the potential to reach an entirely different audience through animation. See more »

Goofs

In one of the later scenes, they show an envelope that is addressed to a town in Connecticut. In that address, it shows a 5-digit ZIP Code. However, the movie is set during World War I and ZIP Codes weren't used until 1963. See more »

Wonderful movie for people of all ages!
17 April 2018 | by shelleyb89See all my reviews

This film was a great film showing how special one little dog was! It's amazing to me the things that Sgt. Stubby did. The storyline was great along with the graphics. I couldn't help but smile during the whole film. I'm ready to go see it again! A MUST SEE for any dog lover!
