Many castings were made of this hunting statue and the monument became known under various names. The French names came first: Le Chausseur et les Chiens (Hunter and Dogs) or Valet au Chiens(The Dogs’ Attendant). In Australia, the name is Huntsman and Dogs; in the U.S., Hunter and Hounds; in Austria, Der Lauscher (The Eaves-dropper); and in The Netherlands, Halali.
On the southbound plat- form of Garsdale’s train sta- tion is a life-size bronzestatue of a Border Collie named Ruswarp. The statue is placed so that Ruswarp appears to be looking in the direction of the hills where he had walked so often with his master.
