Search and Rescue Dog Statue

I was walking on 50th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues (just above Times Square) and spotted this little statue off to the side.  It’s actually rather nondescript for such a loud-colored dog.

It’s a tribute to search and rescue dogs that was set up by the AKC (American Kennel Club) and Lehman Brothers.  It’s formal name is Bone-A-Fido Patriot and it was made by Gus Ramos.  The plaque reads “DOGNY  America’s Tribute to Search and Rescue Dogs”.

A closer view:
