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.

"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 A2ZCDS.com all the more real for me."

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. A2ZCDS.com is to be commended for restoring this
beautiful feature film on DVD and presenting it for wider viewership."
