Maya a Sanctuary dog.


3"x3" acrylic on wooden plaque.

I was asked by one of my tattoo clients if I could paint a dog she helps sponsor. Maya is currently in a sanctuary. I don't have much more information than that. So today's entry is short and sweet. Just like Maya <3

Got this info on miss Maya:
"Maya is indeed a sweetheart. She came into the rescue I was working with a few years ago and it became clear that she had withstood some type of abuse and did not trust easily. I remember walking her and she'd occasionally bump me with her whole body as if to say, hey I'm here, don't forget about me. She deteriorated in our shelter facility and became more afraid, so we had our behaviorist/trainer work with her and she made definite progress. She would put on a big scary show if someone she didn't know approached her though. She never hurt anyone, but she also wasn't ready to live in a home. Long story short, some people wanted her euthanized because she was deemed "unadoptable" but really she just needed the right environment. So now she is in a wonderful sanctuary where she's safe and getting her needs met. It's an expensive place and the funds we raised don't cover all of it. "
