22.04.05 : Goodbye, Me Lady, released in 1956.
A poor Mississippi farm boy finds a dog of a strange breed and trains it up to be a good hunter. Then he has to do the painful right thing and give it back to the well-heeled owner from whom it has strayed. The movie contains memorable lines by Walter Brennan as the crusty mentor of the boy: “Met a Yankee once. Sanke bit him. The snake died.”
