Monument honors famous WWI war dog Stubby

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,” is being unveiled Saturday in Veterans Memorial Park in Middletown.

Stubby was a Boston-terrier mix that traveled to Europe with a Connecticut unit during World War I. He became famous for warning soldiers of incoming gas attacks and locating wounded soldiers on the battlefield, staying with them until help arrived.
