What's not to love about a ghostly dog? Stuffy is great. I remember my mother telling me about him out at Highland Cemetery. I am a ghost hunter and love local legends my family enjoyed this as well.

Stiffy Green Is a Terre Haute legend. Stiffy Green as legend says was an actual bulldog that was mummified and placed in his beloved owners mausoleum. It is worth a trip to visit Stiffy Green and see his glowing green eyes.
