The story is about a young boy, Travis Coates (Tommy Kirk), and his younger brother Arliss (Kevin Corcoran), and their dog, Sam.

After dinner, the family learns that their neighbor's daughter, Lisbeth Searcy (Martine Beswick), has been kidnapped by a group of Indians, and they decide to help rescue her.

Travis, Arliss, and Sam join their father, Bud (Brian Keith), and a group of men to search for Lisbeth. They are led by Old Yeller, who is now a seasoned hunting dog. Along the way, the group faces several obstacles, but they manage to find the kidnapped girl and bring her back safely to her family.

However, their troubles are far from over, and they soon face a new challenge. Sam, who is fiercely loyal to the Coates family, is kidnapped and taken into the wilderness by a band of robbers. Travis is devastated when he finds out, and he goes on a dangerous mission to rescue his dog.
