was born in Paris, France on March 25th 1810. He was the most successful and prolific Animalier sculptor of his time, especially in commercial terms, and he is considered an equal to any in ability. His father was a successful metal turner who taught his son how to work with metals and the principles of casting at an early age. By 1837 Mene had established the first of his many foundries where he would cast all of his own bronzes throughout his successful career. His favorite subjects were horses or horse sculptures
of which he is considered to be the master at portraying. Next to horses Mene modeled many dog statues, both at work and at play. It is estimated that he modeled over 150 different subjects during his lifetime and the number of bronze casts produced from these models range well into the thousands.Dog Statues
