Sergeant Stubby (July 21, 1916 – March 16, 1926) is the most decorated war dog of World War I, and the only dog to be nominated for rank and then promoted to sergeant through combat.  He was the official mascot of the US’ 102nd Infantry Regiment

He saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, found and comforted the wounded, and once caught a German soldier by the seat of his pants, holding him there until American soldiers found him  

He met Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, and Warren G Harding

Starting in 1921, he attended Georgetown University Law Center with his owner Corporal Robert Conroy (above), and became the Georgetown Hoyas’ team mascot. He would be given the football at halftime and would nudge the ball around the field to the amusement of the fans

Stubby died in his sleep in 1926. After his death, he was preserved with his skin mounted on a plaster cast. Conroy presented Stubby to the Smithsonian in 1956
