Name That Movie?

Hi. I've been looking for this movie for quite a while now.
It's a really old movie. It's about a little white boy that gets into a fight with a black boy, and is being really racist. The black boy lives with his grandma, and the grandma and the white boys dad force the boys to live for a while with each other. They then find a hurt dog and help saving it and becomes best friends. And they are still friends when they are adults and when the grandma dies he moves in with the white boys family, when suddenly his mother returns after abandonnening him as a little baby.
