Stubby was a pitbull and is in the Smithsonian in a glass case.

According to web sources, he was a Boston Terrier. He may have been a mix but looking at Wikipedia articles and comparing them, he looks like Boston Terrier. Most recognizable for me are his bulbous eyes, pits don’t have those big round eyes.
Great story. Thanks for linking.

Thanks! Stubby looks like my wide-glide Pit, Boston Terrier mix, only mine crawls under the bed when it thunders, and would not have done well around gun and cannon fire. Stubby was a brave dog.
