In this patriotic film, a good-hearted boy donates his best friend to the Dogs for Defense, an government organization that trained household dogs for the military during WW II. Following training, the canine recruit is assigned to keep a defense plant safe from saboteurs. Coincidentally, the boy's boozy father also works at the plant. The father redeems himself, and the dog becomes a hero when they team up to stop the enemy from blowing up the factory.
