This is an original painting, the reference photo was taken by Shannon Johnstone from her project called "Landfill Dogs". Located in Raleigh North Carolina. Each week she takes a dog that has been at the shelter the longest and are at risk of being euthanized, brings them out to the landfill to get some wonderful photos. Not only have her photos made a huge impact on exposing these dogs with publicity, but they also entitle the dog to a car ride, one on one attention, treats and a chance to run around and enjoy some fresh air. The photos are absolutely captivating how happy these dogs are outside of the shelter. She has helped a lot of dogs find homes through her photos, and awareness to people that when their times run up at the shelter, sadly they end up in the landfill.
This painting is of Impoundment #93025. AKA Tom Thumb.
Good news! Tom Thumb has been adopted! Yay!
