This is Timmi from the Prince George's County SPCA/Humane Society.  Here's what my friend, Pam Townsend, reports:

Timmi was a cruelty case.  He was kept tied up outside and emaciated and covered with fleas.  As a result, he has some fear aggression issues (primarily barking) related to unfamiliar people (particularly men) and unfamiliar situations.  We're working with him on this but it will be an ongoing process and any adopter will need to understand his limitations.  Fortunately, when he trusts someone, he loves attention and will collapse in their lap to have his tummy rubbed.  He's also obsessed with his orange ball.

What a wonderful thing to bring more attention to the animals that have challenges.  Even though folks may not be able to adopt because of Timmi's certain conditions, they can support him by buying a painting or making a donation.

Well done Liz!


  1. Yay Liz! thanks for sharing Timmi's story and his portrait for such a good cause. What a beautiful baby. I hope he finds a loving furever home very soon.

  2. Oh, what a cutie Timmi is. And, it breaks my heart to learn about his circumstances! And, even angrier!!

    Anyway, Liz you've done a wonderful thing here, and you've captured Timmi's "love" of his orange ball just beautifully:) I love that playful stance that dogs take when they want to play!


  3. What a handsome boy Timmi is! This is another great job Liz. Thank you so much for all your efforts! I wish I could play a game of ball with him right now. :-D
