"From the classic book by William H. Armstrong comes Disney's all-new production of Sounder, an uplifting story of one boy's faith, strength and dogged determination. As Boy's(Daniel Lee Robertson III) family faces the daily struggle of Depression-era sharecroppers, a loyal coonhound named Sounder becomes their only real friend. Food is scarce, and nightly hunting trips offer little relief. In an act of desperation, Father steals to feed his hungry family. When Father is convicted, it triggers Boy's courageous journey to find him in the labor camps. Boy comes a long way to discover much more- a friendly teacher, a hunger to read and a better life."--Container.

I have not read the book, so I am going based on watching the movie alone. With a title of the dog's name "Sounder", one would expect the movie to be about the dog. However, this was not the case as the dog in question seemed to be more of a secondary character, albeit the story of the African American family. The movie had high and low points, but I was really hoping for was more dog-related scenes that fell flat. And what that poor dog went through, too!
