The Talbot Inn Sign
The Talbot Inn Sign
The talbot was a popular breed of hunting dog, a kind of hound. The dog appears on many pub signs. There are a number of reasons why the dog is used. The dog is the heraldic symbol of the Talbot family, the Earls of Shrewsbury. St Hubert, bred hunting dogs, and had a religious vision while hunting and his dogs became sacred, or it could be directly from this now extinct breed of dog.
