He was a champion (brindle type), and his undershot jowls, bow legs, tremendous shoulders and ferocious expression belied his gentleness. He was struck by an automobile in the upper Chapel Street area and was found with his spine fractured, feebly dragging his frame along on his two front legs. After a year of fighting paralysis in his hind legs, he went to the canine happy hunting grounds in 1940. During his incapacitation, a bulldog named Bull, in the company of a local boy named Jim Day, was at Yale practice sessions and took over to become Handsome Dan V.
