CDV of The Castle Thunder & Libby Prison Guard Dog “Nero” or “Hero”!
Depending on if you were a rebel, his name was “Hero” but if you were a Yankee his name was “Nero”! This CDV calls him Hero. He weighed 198 pounds and from the tip of his tail was 7 ft 1 ½ inches. In the book, Portals to Hell, it states “Nero, Captain Alexander’s infamous guard dog, was bought over from Castle Thunder to patrol the Libby grounds.” Our CDV is in fine condition and has Hero’s story on the reverse. One of only two CDV’s we have seen of this famous guard dog who was brought from Russia where he had fought several bear fights… and won!
