Nipper the RCA Dog, Albany

info_outlineInformation in English


Nipper was a Fox Terrier and Bull Terrier mix that became the symbol for RCA Music.

This 25' tall likeness, the largest man-made dog in the world, was built in 1954 and placed atop the RCA building in Albany. It has a steel frame and composite body and weighs 4 tons. His name is inscribed on his collar. Originally, there was also a Victrola box with horn.

Arnoff Moving and Storage bought and renovated the Albany building and Nipper in 1997. Because of Nipper's height and position on the roof, he has an aircraft beacon on his right ear.
