Canines love to share their special talents and skills to bring love and happiness to their owners. Their skills can range from rolling on the floor, singing, acting, and even helping with house chores.
But the dog in this story has a very rare and unique talent.
Ivy, a 7-year-old Aussie Shepherd who lives in North Carolina, has an impressive talent. The furry canine can create modern paintings with colorful acrylic paints – all on her own. Yes, she can create her own masterpiece.
Because of her rare skill, her owner sells them to help raise money for charities despite the pandemic.
Would you believe that painting isn’t the only talent she has? Lisa Kite, her owner who is a retired nurse, has also taught this smart girl how to play Jenga, open and close doors, and get drinks from the fridge. What a multitalented pooch!
Lisa shares that Ivy learned to paint after she made her a special paintbrush that she can easily hold in her mouth. After a little practice, the pup has since then turned it into a hobby and past time, which made her the famous painter that she is today.
Lisa adds that Ivy is a very opinionated canine and does what she wants to do. Sometimes, Lisa suggests adding a little color to the painting. But Ivy would instead grab a brush and go crazy with it.
Lisa also adds that the canine has shown a strong attraction to the color blue. Since dogs are semi-color blind, they see the colors yellow, blue, and gray most clearly. It clearly makes sense why she is drawn to this hue, but she still works with other colors too.
Each painting takes weeks to complete. Once sold, it is all donated to charity.
