Based on the Newberry Award-winning novel by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, this heartwarming tale of a boy and his dog reaches for greater significance and depth than the typical entry in the kids' movie genre. Blake Heron stars as Marty Preston, a kid who lives in a rural town with his mom and mailman dad (Michael Moriarty). One day, Marty finds an injured beagle that's run away from its abusive owner, a hunter named Judd Travers (Scott Wilson). Kindly neighbor Doc Wallace (Rod Steiger) tends to the dog's wounds, but Marty's father explains that they must return the beagle to its rightful owner. Travers continues to abuse the dog, and it runs away again, returning to Marty. The boy, who has named the puppy "Shiloh", attempts to hide the animal from his family in the woods, but a scrap with another stray dog leaves Shiloh hurt and in need of medical assistance once again. Now Marty's in deep trouble with his dad, until he comes up with a plan to buy Shiloh from the nocuous Travers. Shiloh inspired a sequel, Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season (1999).

Take an adorable dog, an exciting plot and great acting and you have Shiloh. This movie is wonderful, and it leaves you with a smile on your face!
I rate this 5 stars because I am an owner of a Beagle. I adore them so much and when I saw the owner mistreat the beagle it brought me to tears. To see this kid save this beagle from being seriously hurt touched my heart in everyway.
Good family movie. Although, it does deal with animal abuse and you might want to prepare your children for this beforehand.
