Book Report: Old Yeller (Technical Issues)
When a "dingy yellow" dog comes for an unasked stay with the family, Travis reluctantly takes in the dog, which they name Old Yeller. The name has a double meaning: The fur color yellow pronounced as "yeller" and the fact that its bark sounds more like a human yell. Though Travis initially loathes the "rascal" and at first tries to get rid of it, the dog eventually proves his worth, saving the family on several occasions, rescuing Arliss from a bear, Travis from a bunch of wild hogs, and Mama and their friend Lisbeth from a loafer wolf.
Travis grows to love Old Yeller, and they become great friends. The rightful owner of Yeller shows up looking for his dog and recognizing that the family has become attached to Yeller, trades the dog to Arliss for a horned toad and a home-cooked meal prepared by Travis' mother, who is an exceptional cook.
Old Yeller is bitten while saving his family from a rabid wolf. Travis kills Yeller after the fight with the wolf, because he cannot risk Yeller's becoming sick and turning on the family. Old Yeller had puppies with one of Travis' friend's dogs, and one of the puppies helps Travis get over Old Yeller's death.
They take in the new dog and try to begin a fresh start. The new puppy becomes the title character of the follow-up book Savage Sam  and movie. A third book, Little Arlissis set after the first two and features Travis' younger brother.
