Great-Grandchildren of Son of Sam Dog Are Surprisingly Adorable

Offspring of Son of Sam dogA local family has revealed the identity of their recently adopted litter of puppies as the great-grandchildren of Harvey, better known as the demon dog who haunted the Son of Sam killer, David Berkowitz.

Berkowitz, oft credited as the physical archetype of A-list actor Jim Belushi, was responsible for 6 murders in New York City from July 1976 through August 1977 when he was finally arrested. His reign of terror later inspired a Spike Lee joint, Summer of Sam, which Jim Belushi was not featured in.

The .44 Caliber Killer, as Berkowitz was also known, told authorities he was instructed to commit the murders by his neighbor’s possessed dog Harvey. Though police never questioned Harvey, his owner, Sam Carr, adamantly denied Berkowitz’s claims.

Harvey, a black Labrador, passed away in 1978 after a tumultuous year in which his health steadily deteriorated amid the media firestorm ignited by the Son of Sam. He was survived by his two sons, Sol and Seth. Flash forward 34 years, and a family that was thought to be gone has been found to be alive and well. And cute as all get out!


Eddie and Maria Cavazos of LaCucaracha said they learned earlier this week of the pups’ famous family when their son Cesar took the dogs to school for show and tell. One of Cesar’s classmates reported hearing the dogs talk, but the claim was quickly and accurately dismissed as nonsense. Nonetheless, the incident prompted the boy’s teacher to research the pups’ family tree, where she discovered their notorious great-grandfather.


“We think it’s cool,” says Eddie. “The kids love the puppies. We don’t really understand how they got here from New York, ‘cause that’s, like, pretty far. Farther than El Paso, I think.” And while Maria says the family’s been advised to get rid of the demon spawn, the dogs aren’t going anywhere. 

“Even though they bark all night long,” she added.
