A scrappy stray becomes one of the greatest dogs in military history!
 
Stubby the war dog narrates the story of his life--from his days as a stray to his time on the battlefields of France! Adopted by Private John Robert Conroy in 1917 when the dog wandered into training camp, Stubby soon became the mascot for the 26th Yankee division--even learning how to salute! When the men were shipped out for France, Conroy smuggled Stubby on-board . . . and the rest is the kind of incredible true story that dog-crazy middle graders sit up and beg for! By the end of the war, Stubby had served in 17 battles, been injured by mustard gass and grenade; found and captured a German spy; shaken hands with Woodrow Willson; and become the first dog given rank in the United States Armed Forces!

Juvenile rated ‘Stubby’ - Excellent sequel to ‘Ginger,’ book one, ‘Buddy,’ book two, and ‘Barry’ book three, ‘Togo’ book four; ‘Dash’ book five, and ‘Sweetie’ book six, highly recommended for young readers, especially dog lovers. Kate Klimo’s - Dog Diaries Series - provides you insight into a dog’s life from the dog’s viewpoint. They are on par with other great books for children, for example, Betsy Byars ‘My Dog My Hero.’ Doctor-at-Bass-Fishing! Taylor A.
