A young girl named Gretchen befriends an AWOL army German Shepherd dog, naming him Wolf. When she takes Wolf home, her strict governess notifies the army, who comes to claim him. Wolf escapes from the army training camp and finds his way back to Gretchen. She and her friends travel to Washington to ask the Secretary of War for the dog, but to no avail. In the end, she is given a puppy to replace Wolf.
