Lassie is a brave dog! After missing her owner, she travels all the way back home just to be with him. How well do you know her adventure back home? Take the quiz to find out!
The Carraclough's sold Lassie because they couldn't afford to keep her. It cost the family a lot of money to care for her, and they thought it was best to sell her to someone who could give her the care she deserved.
Lassie was sold to the Duke of Rudling. She knew she was being sold, and was reluctant to leave Joe when he went into school that day.
The Duke lived in Scotland. He took Lassie there with him, but Lassie wasn't planning on staying long if she was able to make a get away!
Lassie waited by the same tree outside of Joe's school, every day at 4 p.m. Joe knew something was wrong if his dog wasn't there when the bell rang!
This is false. After Lassie escaped from her pen at the kennel, Hynes came to take her back. He thought that she was trained to come back home so the Carraclough's could re-sell her.
Priscilla promised Joe that she would take care of Lassie while she lived at the Duke's kennels. She took instructions from Joe to make sure that Lassie was kept happy.
Priscilla let Lassie leave after she escaped from Hynes while he was taking her for a walk. Priscilla opened the gate so Lassie could make her way back home to her family.
Toots, Rowlie's dog, was killed by Buckles and Snickers. Lassie did her best to save both Toots and Rowlie. Rowlie was devastated by Toots' death.
After Lassie left Rowlie, two dog catchers took after her. They noticed that she didn't have a license on her and wanted to take her to the pound.
Lassie injured her leg when she was trying to escape from the dog catchers. She had jumped from a very high window to get away and landed on the pavement below.
It is true that Lassie and Joe reunited at school. Lassie waited for Joe, as usual, despite how weak she was from traveling all the way back home!
The movie is dedicated to the author of the original story of Lassie. His name was Major Eric McKnight and he was killed in WW II.
Joe's mother told him to have a good time with Lassie that day. It caught his attention because he didn't understand why that day was so special.
Lassie woke Joe up while he was sleeping. First she put her face on his bed, and after he still didn't get out of bed, she pulled the covers off of him!
After Joe couldn't find Lassie waiting for him outside of the school, he ran home to tell his parents. It was then that he received the bad news that they had to sell their beloved dog.
Priscilla noticed that Lassie looked sick. The Duke called Hynes over to explain why Lassie didn't seem like herself. He said that she was just adjusting and needed to eat, although she was missing her home and Joe.
Lassie escaped from the Duke's kennel by digging a hole under the fence. She made her way back home where she waited for a surprised Joe to come out of the school!
It is true! Lassie always met Joe outside of the school after his day was finished. She was never late to meet her owner!
After Lassie jumped the fence at the kennels, Joe and Lassie hid. When Hynes came back to the house to take Lassie back, Sam went to find them to bring Lassie back to the kennels.
It is true that Lassie is a collie! The dog that played her in the movie was a collie named Pal!
Hynes treated Lassie very badly. He tied her up in chains and he was very aggressive when taking her for a walk. Luckily, Lassie got away from him.
According to a sign posted by Duncan MacKenzie, he would pay a reward to anyone who brought back the head and feet of any dog found killing his sheep. Although Lassie wasn't interested in the sheep, two men and their dog still went after her.
Although Joe was thankful for the pencils, he was really hoping Lassie was the surprise.
Dally and Dan'l took care of Lassie after they found her collapsed in their yard. They nursed her back to health and then let her get on her way!
Dally knew that Lassie had somewhere to go because she wanted to go outside at a certain time every day. Dally sensed that Lassie was on her way to somewhere important.
After Lassie left the elderly couple, she met Rowlie and Toots. Rowlie was a tinker, and Toots was his dog.
It is true. When Rowlie first saw Lassie, he noticed that she was afraid. He gave her some food and hoped that she would be less afraid of him and Toots.
Rowlie and Toots put on a performance in each of the towns in which they stopped. Lassie joined in for one of their performances, and Rowlie said that she was royalty!
Joe thought his family's luck had left with Lassie. His father wasn't able to find a job, even though he tried very hard to find one.
After Lassie had finally made it back home from Scotland, the Duke showed up to the Carraclough's house. He came back to find out if Lassie had travelled all the way back to her home.
It is false. Sam was able to find a job with the Duke! He asked him to work at the kennels with his dogs since there was a job opening there.
When the Duke found out that Lassie was indeed at the Carraclough's, he pretended that it wasn't her. He could see how much Lassie loved her family and how much they loved her back, so he went along with them.
Lassie was shown with her puppies at the end of the movie. After reuniting with Joe, the family found their luck again, thanks to their special pup!
Lassie made it into England by swimming through a river. She was very exhausted, which was how she met the elderly couple who helped her.
Many people who encounter Lassie throughout the film call her "Lady." Of course, they don't know her name, but from her demeanor, they sense that she is a very polite and friendly dog.
