Handsome Dan

Handsome Dan - the most interesting dog in the world

Please read Handsome Dan’s story:

http://www.handsomedansrescue.org

"Handsome Dan" by Christine J Head

"People Don’t Rescue Him, He Rescue’s People", while the real Advertisement entertains us with far fetched quotes, - Anyone who has rescued knows that this one isn’t an exaggeration.

Handsome Dan is one of the dogs who was rescued from quarterback Michael Vick’s former "Bad Newz Kennels" where he bred and fought pit bull type dogs.

While many of his rescued brothers and sisters are out at schools and events, serving as breed ambassadors, Handsome Dan prefers to work behind the scenes at "Handsome Dan Rescue" with his rescue mom Heather.

42 Hearts in 6 Minutes

42 Hearts in 6 Minutes watercolor print

"42 Hearts in 6 Minutes" by Christine J. Head
Christine is very excited about this interactive piece and it’s statement.
There are 42 hearts hidden among this inquiring pittie face and his surroundings. How many minutes will it take you to find them all?
In about 6 minutes, 42 animals will be put to sleep in the United States.
This is something that can be just for fun, or upon further explanation, it’s a piece to ponder the overwhelming number of animals that lose their lives each day in the United states. Some of the hearts are very hidden! Christine will have a “cheat sheet” available to those who want it/order the print.

Christine J. Head’s sought-after, limited edition prints and posters have helped numerous rescues raise much needed funds.

Initially, Christine did "hands-on" rescue work, housing several foster dogs and going through the painstaking process of finding the right permanent home for each of these dogs who already found a permanent place in her heart. Eventually, her interests in the creative arts and canine needs combined and she discovered the best way to apply her talents to raise money and awareness for animal rescue.

Christine started The Puppy Sketches in 1999 and has been contributing to rescue organizations ever since by creating original and limited edition posters. Originally, her beautiful portraits of dogs in need of urgent medical care and adoption accompanied by the dog’s poignant story, raised thousands of dollars for individual rescues.

Currently, Christine’s focus is on highly stylized vintage/Art Nouveau-style posters prints that raise money for multiple breed rescues. These posters are sold almost exclusively through rescue organizations.

Some notable animal lovers and celebrities who collect her work include actresses Jorja Fox, Mary Steenburgen, and Comedienne Elayne Boosler.
