A beloved German Shepherd named Kaleb , is separated from his Jewish family when the Nuremberg Laws are enacted in WWII Berlin. He is adopted by an SS Officer who trains him to attack and round up Jews at a concentration camp. Kaleb is good at his job until one day when he is distracted by a familiar scent. His original master, a young boy named Joshua (August Maturo), has arrived as a prisoner of the camp.
Kaleb has not lost his loyalty to Joshua who finds solace in secretly visiting his dog at night. But Joshua’s life is at risk, so, together they escape the camp. After months of near-death experiences, they are found by partisans who help Joshua make safe passage to Israel.
Shepherd the Hero Dog, also known as Shepherd: The Story of a Jewish Dog, is based on the bestselling Israeli novel, “The Jewish Dog,” by Asher Kravitz. The movie is directed by Emmy nominated American filmmaker Lynn Roth (Changing Habits, The Little Traitor), who also wrote the screenplay.
