Sergeant Stubby was a brindle bull terrier mutt. He was a World War 1 hero. Sergeant Stubby was the greatest war dog in our Nation’s history. And now there is a movie about him.
The movie is supposed to tell the tale of Stubby’s life as a war dog. Stubby started out as a stray on the streets of New Haven, Connecticut. He was rescued by a young American soldier named, Robert Conroy. Conroy and his fellow soldiers forged bonds with Stubby.
Stubby went to France with Conroy, and fought in the trenches with him and the other soldiers. He was in many battles and even received wounds during a chemical attack. Stubby recovered and continued to stand by his troops.
Sergeant Stubby survived the war and came home to the States. He led parades as a decorated war hero. Stubby even went to law school with Conroy. He became the mascot of Georgetown University.
This wonderful dog lead a very adventurous life. I truly hope that the movie captures Stubby’s love for Conroy and his courageous nature. I am waiting in great anticipation to see this movie!
How about you? Are you going to take your family to see it? Will you point out to your kids that the wonderful dog they are watching is a bully breed? I hope this movie starts conversations!
