Ellie Smiles Print by MyPhotoArt

This print by MyPhotoArt features Ellie the smiling dog. Ellie needed a new home and we found each other a year ago. Her shyness and fear has been replaced by exuberance and joy. She smiles all the time! I wish the same freedom for all animals - to know love. It opens the door and allows their true personalities to shine.

I help animals by giving a minimum of 10% of all sales to local animal sanctuaries and no kill shelters. I am also discussing a photo campaign with them where I take studio quality photos of the animals in need of forever homes and try to really capture their personality. I hope this will help them find the loving homes they yearn for.


  1. Oh my gosh... what a HAPPY dog she is ! LOVE it :)

  2. What a pretty, happy dog, she brought a smile and laugh to me and brightened my day :)

  3. Thanks for your nice comments. She is a very happy girl now. She has such a unique personality and I laugh and smile more because of her.

  4. I hope your studio quality pictures really help. Ellie's picture sure shows happiness!

  5. Charming! Brings a smile and happy day! Great entry!
