The Giant Dachshund in Dillon is located at South of the Border. The 15-foot-long statue is installed next to Pedro's Hot Dogs. It was produced by International Fiberglass in the 1960s as the Hot Dog Hound. This photo shows the statue ready for shipment at the factory. [photo thanks Terry Nelson]. [map]

The Giant Dachshund in Ruidoso is an identical statue to the one in Dillon. It must have been produced by International Fiberglass as well. I don't know where it was installed originally but it is now on the roof of the Ruidoso Emporium. It has been there since at least 2015. [map]

Giant Labrador Retriever
Burlington, WA
Giant Labrador Retriever [gone]
Spokane, WA
This Giant Labrador Retriever in Burlington has been owned by the Country Store since around 2013. It was originally located at the Aslin-Finch Feed Store in Spokane, WA which the Country Store bought. The statue is nicknamed Aslin. It is moved around to the company's 13 stores for their Pet-A-Palooza sales events from Spring until Fall.

The Giant Labrador Retriever in Spokane was installed at this Country Store when these photos were taken in 2016. By 2017, he seemed to be gone. It might be moved around to other stores.

Giant Dog

This Giant Dog is clearly made from the same fiberglass mold as the Labrador Retriever statues shown above. However, he is painted to look more like a Pointer. The statue has stood in front of the Doggie District Pet Resort since at least 2016. [map]

Giant Labrador Retriever and Bulldog
Yukon, OK
These Giant Labrador Retriever and Bulldog in Billings were installed around 2017 at the Cimarron Travel Plaza which features a Phillips 66 gas station, truck stop, and dog park. I believe these statues and the Labrador Retrievers shown above were produced by FAST Fiberglass. [map]

The same pair of statues was installed at the Phillips 66 in Yukon around 2016. [map]

If anyone knows of any other locations with these statues, I'd love to hear from you.

George Tirebiter
Los Angeles, CA
George Tirebiter was a USC mascot in the 1940s. He was a mutt that wandered onto campus. His name came from his habit of chasing cars and biting their tires. He was taken to football games and led the school's marching band onto the field wearing sweaters and funny hats. After the dog died in 1950, a successor, George Tirebiter II, was found.

This bronze statue of the George Tirebiter entitled "Mascot/Fan" was created in 2006 by Michael Davis. It depicts George Tirebiter II. For more, see this website.
