About Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero … With the “War to End all Wars” looming, the life of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy (voiced by Logan Lerman) is forever changed when a little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into a training camp in New Haven, Conn. Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and t he chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century. Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter), Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poilu Soldier Gaston Baptiste (Gerard Dép ardieu), Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage. For valorous actions above and beyond his small stature, Stubby is recognized as the most decorated dog in history and the first dog promo ted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, showing the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places.

About the Real – Life Stubby … Before he was a hero, Stubby was homeless, unwanted, unwashed and unloved, scrounging for scraps on the streets of New Haven, Conn. in 1917 — Until he was taken in by Private First Class Robert Conroy of the 102nd Infantry Regiment, 26th “Yankee” Division. In France, Stubby saw frontline action in four offensives and 17 battles. He found wounded Soldiers, saved an entire company by alerting the men to don gas masks and even caught a German spy. After the recapture of Château – Thierry, the women of the town made him an embroidered jacket that would serve as Stubby’s uniform and display his numerous awards throughout the rest of his career. His exploits made front – page news in the U.S. and earned him the rank of Sergeant, the first time an animal is recognized as having been promoted through combat. Returning home to a hero’s welcome, Stubby and Conroy tou red the country leading victory parades and met three sitting U.S. presidents, among other honors.
