We are pit bull advocates through and through – they are forever in our hearts and we believe that they are one of the best breeds in the world!

Because of this passion, we are very familiar with the story of Sergeant Stubby – one of World War I’s biggest heroes. We are super excited to find out (although a bit late!) – that his awesomeness is coming to the big screen!

Not sure how we missed this announcement earlier – but at least we know about it now and we could not wait to tell you about it! After all, this is an awesome holiday gift!

Who Is Sgt. Stubby?

OK, so if you have not heard of Sgt. Stubby – then we will be more than happy to tell you!

Sergeant Stubby was considered a “mixed” breed dog with notations of his breed being possibly a bull terrier or boston terrier – but in the end, he is a “bully breed” of some sort – and with that he helps remove the stigma that is associated with the breed.

Sergeant Stubby served in World War I and took part in 17 battles over an 18 month period. His accomplishments included warning his regime about oncoming mustard attacks, finding and comforting the wounded and even catching a German soldier and holding him in position until American soldiers could find him.

Ironically – our blog being a rescue blog – his story is pretty relevant! 

Stubby was found wandering around Yale University at a time when the 102nd infantry training was taking place. A Corporal named Robert Conroy, who was on the campus fell in love and took him in and even hid the dog on board the troop ship when they shipped out to fight the war! 

This relationship is what this adorable animated movie is about. The characters will take you on a journey from their initial meeting to their expeditions through war, injuries and more. The bond they have is clear and the love they share for each other is even more pronounced!

This movie is not just fun, but educational! 

The movie is available on Prime, Blue-Ray and DVD – but we highly recommend you get the Blue-Ray or DVD version because this is a real piece of history that should be treasured for generations!

Here is a short trailer with bits of the move and how it was created so you can see the level of awesomeness that is waiting for you!

We actually just purchased the movie ourselves and plan on spending this weekend with some hot chocolate and cookies snuggled up with our own non-hero, but just as cute pittie to watch it!

Have you seen it yet? What did you think?
