THE FILM

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is the incredible true story of a stray mutt and the lasting bond he forged with the doughboys of the 26th “Yankee” Division at the onset of America’s entry into World War I.

As writer and executive producer Richard Lanni explains, “2018 marks the 100th anniversary of American involvement in the WWI, leading up to the armistice in November. Our film will be part of the global conversation about the Great War and remembering those who served.”

After being adopted off the streets by Private First Class Robert Conroy, Stubby saved hundreds of lives by sounding the alarm for incoming attacks and catching an enemy spy in the trenches. For his valorous actions, Stubby was the first dog to be promoted in U.S. Army history.

The film has been selected as an official project of the United States World War I Centennial Commission. Follow Stubby’s big screen adventures on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest!
