Stubby the War Dog: The True Story of World War I’s Bravest Dog

Stubby the War Dog: The True Story of World War I’s Bravest Dog

By Ann Bausum, Illustrated by Marty Ittner

Stubby, the stump-tailed terrier, worked behind enemy lines, and gained military honors along the way. Private Robert Conroy 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. Almost 100 years later, Stubby’s great deeds and brave heart make him an animal hero to fall in love with and treasure all over again.
