Description:

"Young Fella is a teaching film; it is also a family film. Again Walter Bergmann presents his charming household and shows the devotion of its members for pets. This time it is a young cocker spaniel that is the star. Subtitles on the proper care of dogs point up the scenes which demonstrate the advice given, as to feeding, bathing, playing and proper use of a run. Young Fella is an appealing pup and a willing actor, but the Bergmann cats steal some of the scenes in typical fashion." Movie Makers, Dec. 1948, 496.
