I’m trying to find out information about Nelson’s dog, Nileus. I see there is a collar surviving in the collections of the National Maritime Museum, http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/62045.htm but I’m struggling to find any more info. Do we know the breed? Do we know how long the dog survived?
Any help gratefully appreciated
I posted your picture of the collar of Nelson’s dog on Twitter, and was sent back the following link – https://philacollect.wordpress.com/2015/09/24/gibraltar-nileus-dog-original-water-colour-artwork-by/ It is to an auction site selling the artwork for a stamp issued in Gibralter, and featuring Nileus. Hope it helps
