Dog Jack – Pitbull War Hero

February 13, 2008 at 5:32 am 2 comments

It really is a small world.  Today I went to Terrierman’s excellent weblog and found this story about Dog Jack, a brown and white bull terrier that learned to understand the bugle calls of his civil war regiment.  Read more about Jack here:

In a wonderful ‘small world’ coincidence, it turns out I know the woman who trained the dog that played Jack in the soon to be released movie “Dog Jack“.  Piglet is a 3-year old deaf pit bull who was left by her “breeder” to die as a baby puppy.  Fortunately for Piglet, she was adopted by Tracy Doyle who not only saw Piglet’s potential, but who also had the training skills to make her shine.

    I’ll look forward to the film. I met Tracey in Kansas City last September – she’s a riot and one smart lady.
