History, Myth, Art', British Museum 2008, pp. 130-1: The cuff-links bear portraits of four different dogs. the dog with large pricked ears may be a Boston terrier, and its companion (also portrayed on the matching tie-pin) may be a Staffordshire bull-terrier. The other breeds are uncertain but undoubtedly belong to the bulldog/bull terrier family.
