Synopsis

As what was billed as the “war to end all wars” approaches, the life of a young army “doughboy” (a United States infantryman during World War One) has his life changed when he encounters a little stray dog with a stubby tail wandering around his training camp. Taking the canine under his wing, Robert gives his new friend a home, a family, and the chance to play a part in a conflict that would define a century. Despite a lack of formal military dog training, Stubby is shipped to the trenches of France and onto a path that would change history, inspiring soldiers and millions around the world with his remarkable display of loyalty and courage. Based on a true-story, this engaging animation serves as an effective introduction for young audiences around the events of the First World War, teaching us all a lesson about unlikely heroes.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
