Rin Tin Tin
#1 Feb 13, 2012
Actually, the story of Rin-Tin-Tin's rescue from a battlefield very likely is myth. The first story that Duncan told (in October, 1919, to the Los Angeles Times) and that three officers of his squadron told goes like this: Duncan and his mates found an adult German shepherd male on the battlefield, and Rin-Tin-Tin was one of a litter born to him and a female German shepherd. That means he was born around the time of the Armistice. A photograph of him and his sister with the 135th Aero Squadron, taken in May, 1919, corroborates this Rin-Tin-Tin's ears are floppy, while his sister's are standing straight up.(German shepherd puppies ears usually become erect when they are five or six months old.)
