An English house and a fox terrier who is growing up. Appearing in the horse-drawn carriage of the uncle, the dog makes his entrance into the family that will take care of him and give him a proper education. The dog grows up between play and smacks and reciprocates with affection the love received from little Johnny and his sister, but meets the adult’s authority with savage aggression. Rex will be independent and indomitable right to the end, even after the uncle takes him back in the same carriage to the distress of the two children. It is a strange thing, love: sometimes there is too little, sometimes too much. Maybe it was too much love that marked the destiny of that dog who became indomitable in the hands of the stern adults.
