Greyfriars Bobby (1961) Movie Description:

A true story about the heart-warming adventures of a loyal Scottish Skye Terrier named Bobby is the basis for the 1961 Disney film, Greyfriars Bobby.

Bobby is the pet of a Scottish farmer and his wife, but the dog's affections lie with the farm's hired hand, Auld Jock. Hard times ensue, Auld Jock is fired and moves to Edinburgh. Jock dies in poverty and is laid to rest in Greyfriar's Kirkyard, a cemetary. Every night, Bobby returns to sleep on Auld Jock's grave.

Despite numerous attempts to chase the dog away, Bobby always finds his way back. The neighborhood becomes enamored of Bobby, but when no one will take responsibility and pay for the dog's license, he faces death as a stray dog. The children of Edinburgh collect and contribute their pennies and Bobby is saved by the kindness of his human friends, adopted by the entire city of Edinburgh.
