Sgt Stubby

Discover An Unlikely Hero

Follow the enchanting and heartwarming story of a relationship between a war soldier and his unexpected dog ‘friend’, which promises to tug at your heart strings. Sgt. Stubby documents the true story of a stray Boston Terrier cross, who joined his master on the battlefields of WWI, taking them – and the audience – through a captivating journey of teamwork, courage and friendship. For his valorous actions, Sgt. Stubby is still recognised as the most ‘decorated’ dog in American history.
