COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A movie produced by a Columbus based production company is in theaters now.

“Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero” was produced by Fun Academy Motion Pictures. 

The movie is based on the true story of the unbreakable bond between a young soldier and a stray dog who is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of sergeant in the U.S. Army. Stubby is the most decorated dog in American history and is widely considered the forerunner to the Army’s working dog program.

Set against the backdrop of America’s entry into World War I, the computer-animated feature shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places. It’s a heartwarming tale for the entire family.   

“There’s a bit of Stubby in all of us. He is a canine version of the American dream. He was a stowaway going to France and he came back leading the Parade. He is an absolute poster boy for dog adoption,” says Richard Lanni, writer and director of the movie.

Stubbs, a dog that was adopted from a shelter in Dallas that has been used around the country to promote the film, is available for adoption.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
