White Fang

A 2018 french made animation movie, Noshi and me stumbled upon this one through Netflix.So we sat back and had a look...PlotWhite Fang is a smart and independant wolf dog pup, whom together with his mom lives in the wild.  While looking for food, he becomes involved with humans, and goes on the adventure of a lifetime while serving three very different masters over the course of this.From being a respected sleddog, to a fearsome dogfighter and a companion to a lawman, White Fang is doing his best to serve them all to his best of abilities.What I liked about it* the gorgeously "painted" animated styleWhat I didn't like about it* this might not be the ideal family movie, as it has some very tragic moments...A fine find on Netflix, and worth the watch for the story and the painting style especcially.
