Description by

Small-town Boy Scout Jimmy Bailey is thrilled when his German Shepherd, Danny Boy, returns home from the Pacific a decorated war hero. But the Baileys' ornery neighbor, Mr. Andrews, considers the former "war dog" a menace to the community and hatches a scheme to get rid of him. He conspires with a farmer to kidnap Danny Boy, however the crafty canine manages to escape. Several weeks later, he attacks the farmer who abused him, leading to a courtroom trial and a Judge's order that Danny be put to sleep. There's nail-biting climactic suspense as Danny Boy saves a toddler from an onrushing train, running the risk of going from K-9 Corps to canine corpse! - Ed Hulse

Product Description:

The PRC "special" DANNY BOY stars Ace the Dog in the title role. Danny Boy, a highly decorated war dog, is kidnapped by a nasty sort who gets his jollies out of mistreating animals. While he comes dangerously close to turning vicious and unmanageable, Danny Boy manages to escape with his basic good nature intact. After a torturous journey home, Danny Boy is reunited with his young master, Buzzy Henry. In real life, Ace the Dog was nowhere near as docile as the character he was playing, and it is obvious throughout that he'd just as soon take a bite out of Buzzy Henry as nuzzle the kid.
