MAJOR: A SOLDIER DOG
During World War II, the U.S. Military established the Fort Robinson War Dog Training Center in western Nebraska, training over 14,000 "dogs for defense" and deploying them all over the world. At the beginning of the program, the U.S. government asked civilians to volunteer their dogs for service, and thousands of pets served our country courageously. MAJOR: A SOLDIER DOG tells the incredible true story of the War Dog program through Major, a border collie from North Dakota, following him through the training at Fort Robinson, his harrowing war service, and finally the tearful reunion with his family.
