Newman, A Dog With The Passion For Painting | Dogalize
Newman, a 18-month-old dog form Euclid, Minnesota, is a very special one: he’s a painter! A local news station called him “the next Picasso”. He paints colorful canvases that his owner sells on Etsy (for about $30 a pop).
According to an interview by his owner, Kaydi Grunhovd, this hobby started as an outlet to keep the hyper dog busy during the winter months, but has turned into much more. “I wanted to show that rescue dogs are smart, and I wanted him to be an ambassador for that. It’s just added bonus that if anybody wants to support him by purchasing one of his pieces of art that donations would be given back to [animal rescue],”she said.
Grunhovd creates special brushes that the dog holds in his mouth as he paints the canvas. All it took was a little training, some treats, and duct tape! Good job Newman, you’re an artist!
