Pep the Dog Plush

 

It’s safe to say that Pep the Dog is quite the favorite around Eastern State Penitentiary, and it’s not hard to understand why.

In 1924, Governor Gifford Pinchot sentenced Pep to life in prison for the murder of his wife’s favorite cat. His inmate number was C-2559, and he even had his very own mugshot!

This story has a hint of folklore to it, but Pep really did spend time at Eastern State. He was here to improve inmate morale and essentially became the prison pet.

This plush Pep is about 7.5" tall and is made exclusively for Eastern State Penitentiary.

$15.45 ($12.95 each plus $2.50 S&H)
