Stubby the War Dog: The True Story of World War I’s Bravest Dog

We rated this book:


Stubby the War Dog is about World War I and about these soldiers, and one of the soldiers, Robert Conroy, found a dog during soldier training. After a week, they were always together. The man named the dog Stubby because his tail was very short. Robert smuggled Stubby aboard trains and a boat to get him over to Europe. Stubby helped Robert and other soldiers in WWI. WWI was caused by Germans taking over territory that wasn’t theirs. On the battlefield, when Stubby found a German soldier, he would grab the soldier by the leg and bite down hard until help arrived. Eventually, Stubby got hurt. Shrapnel from a bomb hit him and he received medical dog help. The war ended well for Stubby. Afterwards, he became more famous, marched in parades, received awards, and met famous people.

The book was okay, but I didn’t like that there were a lot of facts put in that didn’t relate to Stubby. I think it was kind of a bad history book. I don’t think that I can recommend the book to anyone.
