Description
The memorial recalls and honors dogs supporting American troops in the first World War and, more generally, the efforts of all canines serving in law enforcement as well as defense of the nation. The bronze German Shepherd depicted in the scene, wearing a Red Cross blanket, with soldier’s helmet and canteen nearby, stands watchfully atop a 10-ton Barre, Vermont, granite works.

• The product of sculptor Robert Caterson (and his foundry, Robert Caterson Monumental Works, Bronx, NY), the War Dog monument is based on a design by Walter A. Buttendorf.

• Positioned high on a hillside of the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, Hartsdale, NY, and dedicated in 1923, the monument was sponsored by the general public and plot-holders. The memorial was refurbished in 2005 by Karen Fix, Conservation Artisans, Brooklyn, NY.
