Review, Madera Tribune and Madera Mercury, Madera, California, Wednesday 26 October 1927, Volume XL, Number 148, page 2:
Dazed - in a drowning state - he fought frantically to escape the swirling waters into which his assailants had thrown him, only to be saved by his dog just as exhaustion forced him to relinquish his struggle.
This is one of the tensest scenes in "His Dog" screen version of Albert Payson Terhune's gripping story, in which Joseph Schildkraut and Julia Faye are featured, which plays for the last time tonight at the National Theatre (Madera, California.)
Unique in theme, "His Dog" reveals the complete regeneration of a man through his love for his dog. Schildkraut's delineation is not unlike his characterization in Peer Gynt, one of his greatest successes on the stage, while the same traits which made for his splendid performance In "Lillom" also augmented his work in "His Dog."
Vivacious Julia Faye, who triumphed in "Turkish Delight," Irvin S. Cobb's first contribution to the screen, is seen in the leading feminine role of "His Dog," while Robert Edeson and Sally Rand also figured in featured roles.
Karl Brown whose "Stark Love" Is evoking praise the country over for its realism and finesse of direction, directed "His Dog" under the supervision of Walter Woods.
