Jo-Jo The Dog-Faced Boy


Fedor Jeftichew, better known as Jo-Jo The Dog-Faced Boy, was a sideshow performer from Russia. P.T. Barnum, once again seeing the entertaining potential in a person, brought Jo-Jo to America. Fedor, as well as his father, suffered from the same rare condition – hypertrichosis; it encouraged abnormal hair growth.
