Rex was the loved pet of his owner and, they even didn’t separate after their death. The loving dog rests next to John in the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. He was the “American Hachiko” who always loved his owner, forever!
The grave consists of a life-size bronze copy of Rex as a tribute to him made by the residents.
It seems people leave sticks on Rex’s monument because of either a lost or sick pet. What a way to be remembered.
