What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Far from Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog is a 1995 family adventure drama in which a boy and his dog must fend for themselves in the wilderness after a shipwreck. Spoiler alert: For more sensitive viewers -- especially those who love dogs -- the scene in which the dog is left behind in the wilderness after the tween boy is rescued by the search party might be a bit much to take. There are also some moments of peril, including the boat wreck, an interaction between the boy and dog with a wildcat, and a scene in which the tween breaks his arm during a fall down a hill. The dog also falls off of a makeshift bridge but survives. "Crap" is used by a young boy. Overall, the movie imparts lessons on survival as the tween boy applies the lessons taught by his father earlier in the movie.
