The Marx Brothers

It’s our final hint about tomorrow’s Purebred of Interest: One of the earliest American fans of this breed, and also one of the first to bring the breed to the United States, was one of the Marx Brothers.

A twelve year old Julius Henry Marx (“Groucho”) is on the left, his fourteen year old brother, Adolph (known as “Harpo”) appears on the right, Harpo holding their terrier (alternately described as a Smooth Fox Terrier and a Rat Terrier) in a photo believed to be taken in 1906.
