Bitey Things

They bite the hand that feeds.

THE 66 DOGS PROJECT - "The 66 Dogs Project is an ongoing series of hand-painted portraits of dogs currently available for adoption across the United States."

Colorado-based artist Jenny Williams started the “66 Dogs Project" with the goal of helping shelter dogs find permanent homes across the U.S. Williams paints portraits of shelter dogs and includes the contact information of the various shelters on the paintings. She also tries to provide a sense of each dog’s personality in the art piece. When a dog is adopted, the adoptive family is given the portrait for free.

Two dogs at the Baltimore Humane Society, Kana and Sophia, are among the dogs included in the project.  “Both these dogs would make wonderful pets,” Wendy Goldband, Director of Marketing & Public Relations says.  “Potential adopters need to come and spend some one on one time with them and really get to know each’s wonderful personality.  We have all kinds of open space where potential adopters can come and visit.  It’s the best way to see any dog’s true colors – maybe this is a dog who likes belly rubs or who will follow you around like a shadow.  Maybe it’s a dog who loves to play catch.  These are traits you can’t see when walking by their cages in the kennel.”

People may nominate a shelter dog to be painted for the 66 Dogs Project by emailing a photo, description of the dog, and information about the shelter. Please share to help these dogs find great homes! (Photos from the 66 Dogs Project Facebook page

In 2011, Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas embarked on a quest to locate the last surviving 9/11 search and rescue dogs who had worked so tirelessly ten years earlier. Retrieved is a collection of their portraits, a moving tribute to these heroic dogs and their handlers.

I’m actually crying.

I’m such a sap I teared up so hard while reading this. Pits don’t deserve the mistreatment they get, they’re such sweet babies.

My sweet babe wouldn’t ever hurt someone unless I was in real danger. Such a perfect breed.
