If you think your dog is pretty special then you haven’t met this pup. Meet Dagger, the doggy DaVinci. Dagger is the part lab, part golden retriever that paints! He’s a real artiste and his story couldn’t get any cuter.
Dagger, also known as DogVinci, was originally trained to be a highly skilled assistant dog for a company called Canine Companion for Independence. Although Dagger began working hard to master his skills as a service dog, his trainers quickly realized he wasn’t cut out for the job. Dagger must be a firm believer in never giving up because he didn’t let that bring him down!
He was eventually adopted by an artist in California and fell in love with painting. Every time his owner Yvonne was painting in her studio, Dagger would sit close by to watch every stroke of the paintbrush. One day, Yvonne asked if Dagger wanted to paint. He quickly grabbed the paintbrush and began creating masterpieces!
Not only are the paintings absolutely adorable, he also wears a red beret and sash while he’s at work!
