Colored Pencil on Cronaflex

This is my boy Ted, a rescue from the pit of hell that is the Downey Shelter in Los Angeles. He’s going to be ten this year (we got him at a year) and he has been the kindest gentlest animal I have ever had. TRULY a beautiful beast, inside and out.

    This is a fantastic work of art Heather. Well done. A fav for me. I am so glad to hear that he got rescued by you into a loving forever home. :))

  • Ted is a study in survival – fighting ring, shelter, parvo, rattlesnake bite – he has been thru it all. Now he spends his days laying on his dog bed and farting in his sleep.

    what a beautiful portrait, my son has one of these , you have done a great impression of this breed

  • They really are a good breed if they are gotten from a reputable breeder and raised with love. We got lucky with Ted because we think he was originally in a fighting ring and wouldn’t fight. He’s just beat all the odds.
