Sorry, I am bawling my eyes out as I write this. I read all the time about kill shelters and it makes me so mad.
We have no kill shelters here in the UK, the dogs trust, and they do not put a healthy dog down. Surely these dogs can be saved? Stop buying from pet shops and puppy mills. I wish I could have them all. RIP beauties

Heartbreaking. But a wonderful gesture which can raise much needed awareness to kill shelters and it's injustices towards perfectly beautiful innocent dogs. If it weren't 4 the zillions of irresponsible people who can't be bothered to fix their animals--this artist would be painting other portraits. RIP sweeties. Thx Marie
