Pete the Pup

Trainer and owner Lt. Harry Lucenay used one of Pal The Wonder Dog's offspring as Pete in the Our Gang series after Pal was poisoned and died in 1930. This dog, named "Lucenay's Peter", was registered as American Pit Bull Terrier. A few other dogs played Petey, but Lucenay's Peter was the best known.
After being fired from the Our Gang series in 1932, Harry Lucenay retired Peter to Atlantic City, where he was photographed with children at the Steel Pier.
