"A lad of nine trains a group of his canine pets to give a remarkable stunting exhibition. The young ringmaster proudly puts his charges through their paces as his pals watch." [From original Universal Newsreel content sheet] Very little information exists about this film, but we know that you will enjoy it. TAMI staff would be very interested to hear from you if you might recognize anyone in this film of a young cowboy's dog circus that features tightrope walking, high-diving canines and an enthusiastic audience of youthful fans – or, indeed, if you know about the dog circus phenomenon of the period!
