Rags the Terrier

Rags the Terrier

Rags the Terrier became the U.S. 1st Infantry Division’s dog mascot in World War I. He learned to run messages between the headquarters and the front lines-despite being bombed, gassed and one time even when he was blinded in one eye after being hit by a car. He also provided early warnings of incoming shells, saving many lives. Rags was presented with a number of medals and awards.
