Andy Warhol's Great Dane is still there, but not on display. It is on the Warhol Museum archives floor, in a glass enclosed office. You can see it right next to a stuffed lion!

The last time I was there, their research library had Andy Warhol's stuffed Great Dane. I believe that it was originally Darryl Zanuck's.

[Daniel Postellon, 02/11/1998]

"Cecil" was stuffed in 1930 and purchased by Andy in the late 1960s. Warhol paid $300, believing an antiques dealer who claimed that the dog had been owned by Cecil B. DeMille. Cecil was indeed a champion dog, but his owner was a complete nobody, and he had been stuffed as part of a Dog Hall of Fame at Yale University's Peabody Museum, which closed in 1964. It's estimated that the antiques dealer made about $290 profit on the sale.
