About This Piece

A life-size firefighter standing proudly with one of the Fire Department’s trusted comrades “Chief” the firehouse dog. He is in uniform shirt, bunker pants with suspenders and department issue boots. The firefighter’s leg is resting on a fire hose while holding his helmet in one hand and his turnout coat in the other. “Chief”  is adorned with the Maltese Cross; the cross represents a symbol of protection and honor. “Chief” was the loving canine that became legend in the Denver Fire Department, as their honorary dog.
