Sharp-eyed Gary Loebner was the first Los Altos Patch reader to correctly identify the subject and location of our Photo Challenge feature.
Loebner wrote: “The Australian Cattle Dog sculpture by Anne Weinholt is located in front of the entrance to (the) Youth Center. As its name implies, this dog breed was developed to herd cattle.”
Loebner can claim bragging rights to his knowledge of Los Altos details and at least one of its hidden treasures often overlooked by outsiders.
Details about the sculpture are can be found on the Los Altos Public Sculpture Committee website. You can see the sculpture yourself at 1 N. San Antonio Road, Los Altos.
