Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero
On Blu-ray™, DVD & Digital December 11, 2018

Based on the Real-Life Story of the First and Most Decorated War Dog in American History, This Inspiring Film Features the Voices of Logan Lerman and Helena Bonham Carter

With the “War to End all Wars” looming, the life of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy 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 the chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.

SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO depicts the little-known true story of the unbreakable bond between a young soldier and a stray dog on the brink of America’s entry into World War I. For his valorous feats, Stubby is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army and the most decorated dog in American history. He is also widely considered the forerunner to the U.S. Army’s working dog program. The delightful animated film shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest places.


Based on an incredible true story, the heartwarming, family-friendly animated adventure, SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO deploys on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On Demand December 11, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Featuring an all-star voice cast, SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO has been lauded by critics and received the Dove Foundation’s “All Ages” Seal of Approval and Parents’ Choice Gold Award, making it an ideal holiday gift that the whole family can enjoy.

SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN HERO was directed by award-winning documentarian Richard Lanni and features the voices of Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & The Olympians) and Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter films).

The true story of Sgt. Stubby has resonated with audiences of all ages, including parents, educators, animal lovers, military supporters and history buffs alike. The film has been selected as an official project of the United States World War I Centennial Commission and its French counterpart, La Mission du Centenaire 1914-18; additional endorsements and educational partners include the American Legion, the Connecticut State Library, the National Infantry Museum Foundation, the National World War I Museum & Memorial and the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes.

Beyond his military exploits, Stubby’s status as an adopted stray has resulted in nearly a century of recognition by animal rescues and welfare organizations. As part of the film’s theatrical release, Fun Academy partnered with more than 90 regional and national animal organizations across all 50 states – including the Humane Society of the United States and the Westminster Kennel Club – to shine a light on the human-animal bond and the amazing things adopted animals can do when given a chance in life.


About the Real-Life Stubby: Before he was a hero, Stubby was homeless, unwanted, unwashed and unloved, scrounging for scraps on the streets 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.

Returning home to a hero’s welcome, Stubby and Conroy toured the country leading victory parades and met three sitting U.S. presidents, among other honors.

  7. My favorite dog was my furry friend, Jasper! He was a Border collie mixed. We lost him a couple of years ago in October. Jasper was my best friend and companion! We got him as a 4 month old puppy from P.A.W.S. and we were blessed to have him 16 1/2 years!! I swear he knew what I was thinking at times! When I walked around with a tumor on my spine for two years before the doctors found it, my buddy knew to stay out of my way! Even nudging the cat to move. After I had back surgery, chemo, radiation, and a stem cell transplant, he kept me company by my bedside! My insurance only paid for a month stay in a sterile room. Then the nurses loaded me up with supplies and sent me home. My husband had to go to work. So my beloved Jasper laid by my bed. He stayed out of the way of my IV pole and never jumped up on me. It’s like he knew that I had a central line and a port in my chest! He was exceptionally kind to the nurse that came 3 times a week. I have mulled over in my mind if I should get another dog. But in the end, another dog could fill his space - but could never take his place!! My Jasper was my earth angel. My heart is still hurting!!!!! I am sorry for rambling! I just wanted you to know how special he was!!!! Thank you!
