Deep in the jungles of Vietnam on a reconnaissance mission, Beauregard, a smart and loyal Doberman Pinscher, alerts his patrol to danger. But when the sergeant ignores Beau's warning signs, the group find themselves under heavy fire. Managing to escape with severe injuries, Beau is the only one to make it out alive.
Though many in the armed forces were sceptical about the use of military dogs, Lieutenant Colonel Ricci saw Beau's potential and fought for his rehabilitation and re-assignment to a new handler. Beau then found himself in the trusting and capable hands of Corporal Chivington. What he did next proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was a worthy and indispensable part of his team.
This historical fiction is a touching tribute to all of the service animals who have dedicated their lives to protecting and serving - our canine warriors.
