On Monday, Nov. 19, the Trojan Dog, Roanoke’s four-legged friend, will depart Fire Station #7 to be groomed. The dog, a fixture in the Grandin Village since 2010, will get a new protective coat, and 4 DD Designs will work to fix small cracks on his ears. Once completed, the dog will be placed in a yet-to-be-determined location while Fire Station #7 is under construction. Watch for his reappearance in early 2019.
According to Susan Jennings, Arts and Culture Coordinator for the City of Roanoke, “The dog was born in 2010 during the Art in Roanoke temporary art show by local artist Ann Glover. He quickly gained in popularity prompting the Raleigh Court Civic League to apply for a neighborhood grant to make the Grandin area of Roanoke his permanent home.”
