Rhyme of a Rescue Dog

A fine art print for rescue dog lovers


About the Rhyme of a Rescue Dog print

This print is a fine art print of an original mixed media artwork. It is printed using archival quality inks on matt acid free paper to faithfully reproduce the textures and subtle colours of the original artwork.

It was inspired by the thousands of dogs in rescue homes and shelters around the world, who are waiting for their forever home.

Taking the form of a poem, written by a rescued dog, it is a heartfelt 'ode of gratitude' to all those who have let a rescue dog into their hearts and homes.

Intrigued by the stories of how people come to choose the dog they will take home, this print is a tribute to the great leap of faith people make when rescuing a dog and, despite the terrible ordeals that many of these dogs have had to endure, people are prepared to take that leap and create their own happy endings.

Lots of people tell me that, in retrospect, they are not sure whether it is they who have rescued the dog, or the dog that has rescued them!


About the original artwork

The original piece of art was created using collage, acrylic paint and drawing ink.

The background was created by layering fragments of vintage maps and tables of numbers as a visual representation of the huge numbers of dogs in rescue shelters around the world. Layers of paint and ink were then applied to create an aged and highly textured base for the dogs and poem.

The letters of the poem were painstakingly cut from old newspapers and vintage rubber stamp catalogues.

I received my print - absolutely love it. I purchased it in memory of my rescue dog who I got seven years ago and who passed away this June. It broke my heart and left me gutted. This poem reminds me so much of what he meant to me… thanks so much I love it.
