Stubby the War Dog: The True Story of World War Is Bravest Dog
Library Binding. 80 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 8.8in. x 0.4in.Move over, Rin Tin Tin. Here comes Sgt. Stubby! That German shepherd star of the silverscreen may have been born behind enemy lines during World War I, but Stubby, the stump-tailed terrier, worked behind enemy lines, and gained military honors along the way. Private RobertConroy casually adopted the orphan pup while attending basic training on the campus of Yale University in 1917. The Connecticut volunteer never imagined that his stray dog would become a war hero. He just liked the little guy. When Conroys unit shipped out for France, he smuggled his new friend aboard. By the time Stubby encountered Conroys commanding officer, the dog had perfected his right-paw salute. Charmed, the CO awarded Stubby mascot status and sent him along with Conroys unit to the Western Front. Stubbys brave deeds earned him a place in history and in the Smithsonian Institution where his stuffed body can still be seen. Almost 100 years later, Stubbys great deeds and brave heart make him an animal hero to fall in love with and treasure all over again. This item ships from multiple locations.
