War Dog Me­mo­rial

The Point of You - - HISTORETHIC -

Dur­ing the First World War, tens of thou­sands of mil­i­tary hounds were used to save wounded soldiers or pull carts. In 1921, Harts­dale Pet Ceme­tery erected a mon­u­ment in their mem­ory. Pro­duced by a sculp­tor named Robert Cater­son, it is in the form of a Ger­man Shepherd poised on a rocky promon­tory with a hel­met and a can­teen at its feet. The dog—a real-life hero—wears a Red Cross blan­ket.
