Skeeter has found this dog and discovers no one knows what kind of dog it is. Discussing the matter with his uncle the desire to keep and train the dog for bird hunting after finding the dog has super senseing ability but does not bark. He "yoddles" or laughs as some would say. However the real owner William Hoppers character wants him back due to the rarity of the breed. A very sensitive and moving film especially for fans of Walter Brennan and any dog lover.

My Lady was six months old when she was brought over from England, along with other Basenjis to act as stand-ins. In the agreement to supply the dog, it was written into the contract that My Lady would belong to De Wilde after filming was completed. See more
