Check out this English Bulldog in full military uniform as the official mascot for the U.S. Marines (at the Parris Island Marine depot in South Carolina).
I took the following pictures at my nephew’s graduation from Boot Camp.
The dog’s name is Hummer.
Hummer accompanies all Marine recruits at Parris Island through training as part of his own transition into becoming a full-fledged Marine.
Sir, Yes Sir!
This English Bulldog is officially “on duty” in the U.S. Marines.
Renowned for their tough, muscular and aggressive appearance, the English bulldogs have long suited the Corps’ need for a symbol and a faithful mascot. Prone to weight problems, often reluctant to obey orders and always last to fall into formation for physical training, the dogs have also always found favor with struggling junior Marines, who are relived that the Sergeant Major has someone besides them to bark at!.

English Bulldogs epitomize the fighting spirit of the U.S. Marines. Tough, muscular, aggressive, fearless, and often arrogant, they are the ultimate canine warriors. English Bulldogs… Teufel-hunden… Devil Dogs. They symbolize the ethos of the Warrior Culture of the U.S. Marines. Source
