The Story of Mutt the French Bulldog of WWI = During World War I, many dog breeds participated in multiple tasks that would be deemed unusual in today’s modern wars. Among them are the bulldogs that pulled carts with machine guns to the other end, while others provide supplies. I recently stumble upon a brave dog who served the US military in World War 1. That is Mutt the French Bulldog of WWI who worked as a trench messenger – From the famous book “War Dogs – A History of Loyalty and Heroism” comes this description of Mutt – “Mutt’ a “trench runner’ Frenchie delivered cigarettes and gave his friendship to the soldiers.
You know, normally dogs provided psychological comfort, even if it is just for a few moments. Mutt Bulldog was badly wounded twice but could not stop providing energy to front-line troops and he also spent most of WW1 boosting the morale of the US Army Engineers. Therefore, when World War 1 finished, the mascots were usually left behind.
However, Mutt the French Bulldog of WWI was lucky to be smuggled on board. When Mutt was discovered and under threat of being thrown overboard. But his savior said they’d have to throw him overboard also.
Hence, Mutt returned safely to New York.” In the later years, French Bulldogs were so popular among in high society of wealthy Americans. When Mutt back to New York, he lived his remaining days before dying of natural causes a few years later.
Mutt – The French Bulldog of WWI was a real companion in world war 1, I that provided many services, like comfort, delivering the goods, finding wounded soldiers on the battlefield, pulling and pushing war weapons, sending messages between the lines, sniffing oppositions positions, and battalion mascots.
Mutt brought happiness to the faces of many soldiers in the worst ever war. Just imagine, how difficult for a dog to provide supplies on the battlefield. That is an awesome job he had given in a horrific time in humankind’s history. He proved Mutt was a loveable, faithful, and loving companion.
