3.  Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero  (PG)  A Salute to Service . . . Trailer

An animated movie about the true story of a stray dog adopted by a soldier during World War I.  Stubby became the official mascot of the 102nd Infantry Division, and received an actual promotion to the rank of sergeant for helping the men of his unit.

Stubby saved the lives of his men by detecting gas attacks, leading medics to wounded soldiers on the battlefield, and even catching a German spy in the division’s trenches.  By the end of 17 battles, he was the most decorated dog in Army history.

Despite the animation, the dog does NOT talk for the sake of historical accuracy.

Logan Lerman from the “Percy Jackson” movies is PFC Robert Conroy, the guy who adopted him.  It’s narrated by Helena Bonham Carter, as Robert’s sister.  And Gerard Depardieu is also in it as a French resistance fighter.
