HACHI - A Dog's Tale (2009)
This heartwarming true story is an American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko. In Bedridge, Professor Parker Wilson (Richard Gere) finds an abandoned dog at the train station and takes it home with the intention of returning the animal to its owner. He finds that the dog is an Akita and names it Hachiko. However, nobody claims the dog so his family decides to keep Hachi.
