Whenever my boxer pup Nitro and I go anywhere the first thing people say to us is "Oh my gosh, it's Pete from the Little Rascals." Looking back at these old movie clips of Pete I can see now what folks are talking about. Nitro does resemble Pete although Nitro is a Boxer and Pete is one of the first Pit Bull Terriers registered with the AKC in the 1930's. I think the biggest trait they have in common is Pete was fully trained by hand signals just like the hand signals Nitro is learning now (Nitro is 100% deaf). Pete could hear but they needed to train him with hand signals so his commands could not be heard on the audio of those old movie tracks. Here is an old Little Rascals clip of "Pet the Pup In Our Gang helping the kids" video I found on YouTube. I will also put a photo of Nitro and Pete under the clip. What do you all think? Do they look alike ?
*** Smile Alert! ~ This is the best 7 minutes of all the Little Rascals you will ever see. According to Lexi, these clips will put a smile on your face.
