Shadow: A homeless dog turned into a sweet and loving girl-all through a families determination to rescue her! It doesn't get much better than that! :O)

Shadows story of homelessness, hunger and fear broke my heart; but loved the rescue made by pet parents Mark and Mary. And their "failure is not an option" attitude in helping this girl to become a sweet and trusting companion.
Thank you Mary for choosing me to paint this series of portraits for Mark's birthday!
