I have not posted on here in a few months, been terribly busy and just can't catch up. I lurk on here occasionally and when I see something unique I try and post a pic. It is cast bronze handle shaped like dog. Customer claims it has been there for the 40 years he has lived there. Never seen one in my 35 years of plumbing. Handle loosened up and threads are wore out in body of hose bibb and stem .I replaced withe freezeless faucet and he gave me this one to keep . Looks like it was cast over existing handle as it cannot be removed.
