Arbor The Painter Dog Paints To Help Save Lives
Have you ever heard of Arbor the painting dog? Watch and marvel at this incredible story of compassion.
Arbor was himself a rescued dog, rescued from the streets of Las Vegas. Somehow, his forever home found that he had a talent for taking a paintbrush to his snout and making lively, earnest strokes. We know not everyone thinks that abstract art is art, but what else can you call this impulse from a nonhuman who has no biological use for his impulse?
When the tornadoes hit Oklahoma, Arbor was there to help, in his own special way. Arbor’s way of giving back was painting tributes to the victims of the calamity, with his paintings to be auctioned for charity.
Does Arbor know or understand all of this? No, but it doesn’t really matter. Arbor’s art is going to save a few lives, just like his own.
