A large, prominent tongue of blue ice, which plunges between Blank Peaks and Mount Rich into the centre of the Brown Hills. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-MM06
Discovered by the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (1962-63). So named because in plan the glacier is shaped like the head and neck of a dog with a transverse zig-zag moraine forming the collar and a proglacial lake in the position of the ears. Fog regularly accumulated over the glacier from the Ross Ice Shelf.
