Rescued Dog's Paintings Sold On Etsy

Now we know there's no excuse for you or your pup to claim boredom during the cold winter months. Newman, pictured above, hails from Minnesota, so if he and his parental unit can keep Newman occupied, well, off the couch for all of you! Our friends at DogTime Media featured this story just a few days ago.

Newman's parental unit, a veteran at fostering dogs, realized this energetic, mixed-breed  pup needed to channel his energies during the long Minnesota winter, so she...of course, taught him to paint. Wouldn't you think of that to help your pooch stave off the winter blues? By teaching Newman both how to hold a paint brush in his mouth and how to paint, his parental unit figured that would help demonstrate that rescue dogs are smart. "And I wanted him to be an ambassador for rescue dogs."

Indeed, she's selling his beautiful paintings on his own Etsy shop, and all the money goes to Circle of Friends Humane Society in neighboring North Dakota. Don't Newman and his parental unit put some zip in your step as you head into the weekend?

We think those paintings are beautiful, too! Parental Unit has a hard time believing she could teach me to hold a paintbrush, let alone, paint...hehehe.

Can anyone tell me what type of breed(s) this dog is? When I first saw this dog in people magazine a couple weeks ago I was astonished because he looks JUST like my dog (shape, not color)! I've been told that my dog is pug/boston terrier but not 100% sure as she was adopted as well so if anyone can tell what breeds this dog is please let me know thank you!
