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.

Rancho Cordova, CA
These three bronze Dogs in Rancho Cordova are located at the Zinfandel light rail train stop. I believe this light rail stop opened in 2004 and these sculptures were probably installed in 2005. Does anyone know who the sculptor was or the title of the installation? The dogs appear to be mixed breeds with possibly Hound and/or Whippet parents. [map]

Esso Watchdog
Pottstown, PA
Esso Watchdog statues were produced by the Esso Oil Company. This German Shepherd was used as the company's home heating oil business mascot from around 1959-1965. These fiberglass statues came in two sizes: seven feet long and three feet long. The larger ones, like this one, were installed on top of the company's oil trucks. This Pottstown statue was located at an Esso Oil delivery company at this site. When Watchdog Condo-Storage opened here, they kept the statue. It is now installed on top of their sign. [map]
