Former D.W. Griffith cameraman Karl Brown held the directorial reins for His Dog. Joseph Schildkraut stars as a roughneck gardener who squanders his monthly pay at the local tavern. While weaving his way home one night, Schildkraut rescues a wounded collie then takes the dog home with him, despite the protestations of his daughter, who is deathly afraid of all animals. Dog and master become inseparable companions, but the friendship is sorely threatened on the inevitable day that Schildkraut must choose between his beloved pet and his equally beloved liquor. He chooses the dog, who ultimately proves his true worth by rescuing Schildkraut's daughter from a reckless driver.
