There's a plaque at the base: 

    Hunter and Hounds (Le Chausseur et les chiens), A. Jacquermat, sculptor, 1895-1924. This shell-torn statue stood guard above a subterranean chamber in which signal corps 3rd division American Army maintained headquarters communications during bombardment of Chatteau Thierry, 1918 - "Second Battle of the Marne" dedicated Armistice Day 1925.

More information:

    According to a brochure prepared by Beverly Hills Recreation and Parks Department, a Mr. Longyear of Beverly Hills wanted to memorialize his son, W. D. Longyear, who was killed in France in 1917 during the battle of Chateau Thierry. He "received permission from the French government to transport the statue to Beverly Hills. On November 11, 1925, Hunter and Hounds was unveiled at the Longyear estate on Beverly Drive and for many years memorial services were held there each Armistice Day. The statue has since been moved from the Longyear estate and donated to the city."

Now it sits in the park across for Beverly Hills City Hall.
