One of the most beloved dogs in our history is the story of Rin-Tin-Tin. He was a German Shepherd dog that was rescued on the WWI battlefield by Lee Duncan, who was an American solider. Rin-Tin-Tin later became a movie star; there were over 20+ movies made with him, and it led to a large increase of popularity for these dogs as pets across North America.
In 2007, a movie was made titled Finding Rin-Tin-Tin, which tells the story of Lee Duncan finding him in France during the war and then later on how he made a movie star out of him. Here is a trailer of the movie below:

Ann Elwood, the author, says about the book: It places their lives in the context of their times, especially France, where they met, and Hollywood, where Rin-Tin-Tin became a star. At the heart of the book are the questions: “Why did a dog, at that particular time, become so famous?” and “How much of the legend of Rin-Tin-Tin is really true?”
