Petey was a character in The Little Rascals, known then as Our Gang, in the 1930s. The character was an American Staffordshire Terrier but in reality Petey was classified as an American Pit Bull Terrier. His trademark was a ring around his eye, which was partially natural but enhanced by paint. He was fired from the series in 1932 and retired to a life of posing with kids for photographs in Atlantic City until his death in 1946.
