Young Billy Freeman (Billy Lee) is caught trying to pilfer from the till of the store he works for. An Delinquency Court inquiry by Judge Roger Davis (Bradley Page) and attractive Welfare representative Joan Allen (Kay Linaker) uncovers some disturbing facts - that Billy stole to bail his dog Pal out of the Dog Pound, and that his father William Freeman (Addison Richards) - whom Billy hero worships - is a single, frustrated and now alcoholic Army veteran. The Judge and Joan Allen, who are romantically involved with each other, begin taking a personal interest in this dysfunctional family. Responding to Billy’s and William’s desire to have at least one Freeman in the Armed Services, the Judge and Joan facilitate the dog Pal’s enlistment into the Army’s Dogs for Defense program. Pal undergoes rigorous training in anti-sabotage, combat and disarming techniques and emerges as Billy and William’s pride and joy.

In their involvement with the Freemans, the Judge and Joan find their personal relationship thriving, too. When William Freeman relapses into alcohol abuse, thereby disqualifying himself from re-enlistment, the Judge pulls some strings with an influential Army supplies manufacturers and gets him a job there. Soon, Pal is assigned on Army Security duty at the same plant and becomes instrumental in foiling a sabotage attempt in which William Freeman is killed under heroic circumstances. The Judge and Joan, having decided to marry, adopt Billy into their new home.

Running Time: 64 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: Approved


"In this classic inspirational feature film, now on DVD from, director S. Roy Luby realistically portrays an American Army family in the stark context of World War II conditions. War Dogs highlights the loyal and talented dog Pal as he rises to the challenge of a special Army program for canine combatants, the human side of justice and the courage of a father and son who refuse to let their spirits be crushed by adversity. Billy Lee plays his role of never-say-die Billy Freeman with aplomb, and captures the viewer’s heart from the very outset. Bradley Page as Judge Roger Davis and Kay Linaker as the fiery Welfare officer Joan Allen give accomplished and heart-warming performances. But it is Ace, the canine virtuoso who portrays Billy’s beloved dog Pal who really steals the show in this wonderful feature film that did a great service to an innovative Army project at the height of World War II. The film is perfectly orchestrated and delivers a timeless message of courage and family bonding that will speak straight to your heart.... brings you War Dogs, S. Roy Luby’s memorable tribute to the heroic canines who fought in World War II and continue to render distinguished service today. This moving story of re-humanized justice, unshakeable family affection and a dog’s heroic effort to salvage an impossible situation will continue to warm your heart long after the credits have rolled....experience this timeless feature film from the treasure chest - now on DVD!"



"Truly touching, what the dog Pal does for this poor family. I understand that this could well be a real story, since War Dogs was filmed for some kind of Army project that really existed. I loved Billy Lee and Pal the most - my own son is inseparable from his Doberman Mackie, and that made this beautiful film from all the more real for me."
Frieda Molkovicz (Augusta, Maine)

" War Dogs manages to be entertaining and informative at the same time. S. Roy Luby brought out the theme of enlisted dogs in a beautiful and humane manner. The quality and impact of the film is totally unhampered by its ‘low budget’ classification. This is an important film that will especially appeal to war veterans and dog lovers. Personally being neither, I still enjoyed it immensely. is to be commended for restoring this beautiful feature film on DVD and presenting it for wider viewership." Helen Lubbeck (Fresno, California)
