Rhyme of a Rescue Dog

See the full collection from The Enlightened Hound


This print is a fine art print of an original mixed media artwork. It is printed using archival quality inks on matt acid free paper to faithfully reproduce the textures and subtle colours of the original artwork.

It was inspired by the thousands of dogs in rescue homes and shelters around the world, who are waiting for their forever home.

Taking the form of a poem, written by a rescued dog, it is a heartfelt 'ode of gratitude' to all those who have let a rescue dog into their hearts and homes.
Intrigued by the stories of how people come to choose the dog they will take home, this print is a tribute to the great leap of faith people make when rescuing a dog and, despite the terrible ordeals that many of these dogs have had to endure, people are prepared to take that leap and create their own happy endings.

Lots of people tell me that, in retrospect, they are not sure whether it is they who have rescued the dog, or the dog that has rescued them!
