Large German shepherd and small Papillon dog sitting on a deck with potted plant nearby, partial view of steps and house in background. This painting was commissioned as a birthday gift for a life partner. Both dogs were rescues, one a big ole friendly shepherd mix and one a small, shy Papillon who was rescued from a puppy mill. Poppy had a rough time adjusting to life- always suspicious and cautious. Lupine was her protector and friend.
