Rags: Hero Dog of WWI is based on a true story. American Private James Donovan was stationed in France during WWI. His life changed when he stumbled on a bundle of rags on the streets of Paris. To his surprise, the bundle of rags was a little dog! Donovan took the dog back to his military base and adopted him as his own. The little terrier became the division’s mascot as he bravely followed Donovan through battle.
