Back to the Dogs-- Part 2

Some dogs were used as prison guards and weighed over 100 pounds. Confederate Captain Henry Wirz at Andersonville had his own dogs, known as "The Hounds From Hell." He would use them to track down escapees. Some say one of them weighed 198 pounds, stood 38 inches and was 7 feet long. That's A Mighty Big Dog. --Old Secesh
