Summary Old Yeller is about a yeller dog named “ Old Yeller", a boy named Travis, a dad, a brother named Arliss, and a mother. In the story things go up and then down hill. In the story there is some bad times and some good times. I thought it was hilarious when it talked about Arliss being nude. In some parts I was crying like when Travis had to shoot Old Yeller and the loafer wolf.
