Wolfdog of Arles ~ Arles,France

After watching this beautiful animal for quite a long while, I noted he was actually a guard dog. What he was guarding was the begging spot in front of a church in Arles, France. As the church service ended, the beggar would arrive to take his spot… as soon as the last person passed the beggar from within the church, the dog would arrive back on cue, and the beggar would leave. This went on for several services… This was a typical pose for what I like to refer to as “The Wolf Dog of Arles”… The eyes are saddened, the ears catching every sound. The acuity is: Don’t even think of taking this space”…
