Sergeant Stubby (1916 or 1917 – March 16, 1926)


MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — A new monument in Connecticut honors service animals — with a statue of one of the nation’s most famous war dogs.

The sculpture, "Stubby Salutes," was unveiled Saturday in Veterans Memorial
Park in Middletown.

SGT Stubby was a Boston-terrier mix that traveled to Europe with the U.S.
Army’s renown 26th "Yankee Division" during World War I.

Stubby became famous for warning soldiers of incoming gas attacks and
locating wounded soldiers on the battlefield, staying with them until help

His story was the subject of a major animated movie last month, "Sgt. Stubby:
An American Hero."

The new bronze sculpture, created by artist Susan Bahary, is the culmination
of a three-decade effort to create a memorial, spearheaded by the family of
Robert Conroy, the army corporal who adopted Stubby during training.
