Told for the first time, this is the true story of a stray dog who eventually became affectionately known as “Sergeant Stubby” the most famous war dog of World War I. Award-winning author Ann Bausum brings her friendly writing style and in-depth research to her first-ever book for adults. 

Stubby’s story begins in 1917 when America is about to enter the war. A stray dog befriends Private J. Robert “Bob” Conroy at the Connecticut National Guard camp at Yale University and the two become inseparable, eventually crossing an ocean and going to war together. Stubby becomes an invaluable soldier on the front lines and in the trenches, a decorated war hero and an inspiration to a country long after the troops returned home.
