In 1915, Sheridan businessman Peter Neiter purchased the two “Lion Dogs” that now, thanks to Neiter's donation of them in 1919, adorn the entrance to Kendrick Park in Sheridan. The bronze sculptures have been at their current location for almost a century, so it's no surprise that the climate has taken its toll on the old dogs.

Former Chair of the Sheridan Public Arts Committee Fachon Wilson says that a consultant was brought in to come to a conclusion on what can be done to preserve the sculptures into the future.

Wilson said that they're at the point where they'd like to hear some ideas from the public on where to move the dogs.

Wilson pointed out that no decision has been made whether to move the lion dogs, or where to move them for that matter, but that they'd like to gather some suggestions from the public before any decision is made.
