Did you know that the U.S. Marines Corps adopted the Bulldog as its mascot after World War One?
According to tradition, the Marines fought so fiercely in the battle of Belleau Wood in France that the Germans called them “teufel hunden” after the devil dogs from Bavarian folklore. The Bulldog was famously associated with Winston Churchill’s defiance of Nazi Germany as well. Bulldogs became the unofficial mascot of the United States Marine Corps after a recruitment poster featured a Bulldog wearing a U.S. helmet chasing a fleeing Dachshund in a German helmet. For the Marines, there was no better breed to stand in as their “teufel hunden.”
