Jake the Dog

 This is a portrait of Jake that I did for my friend Jane. He's such a sweet dog. She rescued him from being shot by workers on the horse farm where she boarded her horse. They thought he was a fox cause he was so covered in dirt you couldn't tell he was a dog! Jane said he used to slip into the yard and hang around with her horse.  She noticed that he would chew on sticks and try to play with the horses...not very fox-like behavior! Eventually they caught him and cleaned him up. Low and behold, he was a dog! So Jane adopted him. I'm sooo glad they didn't shoot him! He's so precious! I painted this portrait of him a year or so ago.
