The Pooch from Pirate’s of Caribbean

Yo ho yo ho a pirate’s life for me…

That’s what I think when I’m sailing in the dangerous tides on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. The famous scene of the dog carrying the prison’s key in his mouth comes around the corner.

Who’s he belong to? The owner of this loyal dog is Captain Edward Teague, and when Jack Sparrow was younger one of his chores was to feed the dog! Imagine that!

Not sure how he got to Port Royal, but he was employed to hold the key at Fort Charles prison. It was ultimately Pintel, a member of the pirate crew on the Black Pearl, who got the dog to leave his post and also nicknamed the dog “Poochie”.

This lovable dog is usually referred to only as the “dog with the keys”.  The dog was taken by the Pelegostos (a tribe of cannibals native to Isle de Pelegostos) where the customary was to eat their chief to release the divine spirit, however, he ends up at the Brethren Court at Shipwreck Cove and provides Captain Teague with the key to the Pirata Codex.
How’d he escape his fate from the Pelegostos? Why, with the help of sea turtles, of course.
