Overview

Reliability, devotion and faithfulness: endearing qualities shared between people and their canine companions. Shep is the true story of a dog that became an inspiration to people around the world.

For more than five years, through rain and snow, Shep met every incoming train with hopes that he would see the man who had cared for him.
