I enjoyed this movie because I’m not usually a dog film watcher but this movie impressed me big time. This movie showed how dogs are loyal to serve and to protect people, they detect and track for dangerous things, they are scouted as sentries and trackers, and they are use for searching areas too difficult or too dangerous for a normal person or human soldiers.
