Sergeant Stubby appears in numerous articles about pit bulls. The most detailed observations of Stubby’s actual history, however, were recorded by blogger Craven Desires in, “Famous Pit Bulls: The Sgt Stubby Edition.” She pulls passages from, “WAR DOGS: A History of Loyalty and Heroism” by Michael G. Lemish to make her point. She then dismantles the many claims pit bull advocates make about Stubby who was predominantly a Boston terrier, not a pit bull. We have included a few below:

By the end of his military career, Sergeant Stubby was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat. – Cesar Milan, pit nutter
Sergeant Stubby, a pit bull WWI war hero, served in 17 battles, was injured twice in battle, saved his entire platoon by warning them of a poison gas attack, and single-handedly captured a German spy. – Ed Boks, pit nutter (after being fired as chief of Animal Control in both New York and Los Angelels, it appears Boks has a new job in Prescott, AZ!)
World War I posters displayed illustrations of APBTs as proud mascots of neutrality and bravery. Not to disappoint, the most decorated war dog of that time was none other than ‘Stubby’ — a loyal and brave defender of America’s freedom. – BadRap, pit nutter
