Happy Girl by Anne Zoutsos

Happy Girl by Anne Zoutsos - 6" x 6" oil on hardboard/masonite

This poor, thin, undernourished dog was found by a young couple. She had been tied to a stake and abandoned in a park. Unfortunately these people had two large dogs of their own and so couldn't keep her. They put her details online and luckily a prospective owner saw these, went to meet this pitbull (probable) mix and fell in love with her. He adopted her and.....they lived happily ever after.

This girl was fortunate to be adopted by a caring and loving owner - nearly 5 years ago now. Sadly the same cannot be said for a great many dogs and this breed has probably suffered more abuse at the hands of humans than many others.

If you're thinking of buying or adopting a dog, make sure you get a dog that will fit in with your lifestyle - take advice if necessary. Don't forget - a dog is for life.
