Dogs · English Bulldog

In the White House, the “First Dog” is of course a member of the family. An honourable tradition, which would certainly not be amiss among German government politicians. For as we well know, dogs are very helpful in relieving people’s stress and aggression. Those who don’t fancy the constant care, walks and above all the training, can look to this splendid figure of an English bulldog. Konrad Schmid studied the breed’s mannerisms for seven months at various breeders in England. His studies culminated in 1929 in this and other characterful animals, which he designed for the Manufactory’s master workshops.
