Monchi, the American Pit Bull Terrier

graphite pencil drawing, A3

There is an organisation in Hungary which is engaged in saving Pit Bulls and bull-type terriers and finding a home for them. It takes up ill-fated dogs and tries to find them the most suitable owner.

Monchi had got to this organisation and had lived there. Unfortunatelly, she died yesterday at
the age of 8 not too old, owning to tumour. R.I.P.

    Awwww….I’m so sorry to hear that Monchi has passed…..and glad to hear that there is a place for these dogs to go until they can hopefully find forever homes. Monchi looks quite thin. Your artwork of her is wonderful. This work would fit right into the APBT Lovers Group
    Hope to see you there…..and Welcome to Red Bubble!

  • Thank you for your kind words. I’m going to join APBTLovers G now by drawings, later by photos, too.
    We are also big fans of this breed. We’ve got dogs of this type, the youngest is 1 year old, the oldest
    is 13.
    I’m happy that you love my Monchi drawing. She is really thin in the picture. I think it may have been
    the time when she had been taken up by her new owner.

    I’m so sorry to hear she has passed on :(
    She looks like a very pretty girl, a little thin but that could possible be due to her cancer. You’ve done a great job with her drawing

  • Thank you very much!

    All animals are beautiful in my eyes, and this drawing has a special meaning to it as she has passed on. That is so sad. Beautiful work to be seen here with such detail and expertise! Wonderful to view! x

  • Thanks for the words of appreciation

    I’m sorry she died that young. Hopefully she had at least some time of happy homelife before that.

  • Thank you very much for your comment and having a look at my works.As I see you live in the beautiful Finland (so does my cousin). Ask Kimi Raikkonen to return to Formula 1 so that you could accompany him here to HungaroRing. Then I will draw any of your dogs :)))

  • Monchi had a wonderful life,maybe the best.Her owners were the members of a Bull-type Terrier Saving Group and they provided her as comfortable as possible circumstances
