Young Travis Coates is left to take care of the family ranch with his mother and younger brother while his father goes off on a cattle drive in the 1860's. When a yellow mongrel comes for an uninvited stay with the family, Travis reluctantly adopts the dog. After a series of scrapes involving raccoons, snakes, bears, wild hogs and wolves, Travis grows to love and respect Old Yeller, who comes to have a profound effect on the boy's life.

Papa, you ain't forgetting the horse.
Now Papa, you know I've been aching all over for a good horse to ride. I've told you time and again.
What you're needing more than a horse is a good dog.
Yes sir, but what I'm wanting most is a horse.
Alright, you act a man's part and I'll bring you a man's horse.
