Our mischievous puppy pal Liberty was inspired by the dog depicted in Johannes A. S. Oertel’s (1823-1909) Pulling Down the Statue of King George III, New York City.

This painting documents the destruction of the gilded lead statue of King George III of Great Britain in Bowling Green, N.Y., by New Yorkers and Continental soldiery, after the Declaration of Independence had been read to Washington's troops on the Commons on July 9, 1776. In the painting, Liberty the dog is seen in the foreground running about. Fragments of the statue and the stone base on which it stood are preserved in the Society's collection.
