FACES OF CHIN, “Jack” ... Japanese Chin
Jack is the 18th in the series "Faces of Chin"
--from original 16” x 16” Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Jack was adopted from Luv-A-Chin Rescue in September 2009, along with his now sister, Izzy.  The poor soul came to us nearly feral.  It took three people to catch him to get him into the house.  Once there, he would immediately hide under the bed.  I carried him around with me for the first few weeks so that he would figure out that we were there to love and take care of him.  Three weeks after adopting him, Tom figured out that he was deaf, which explained a lot of his fear.  We immediately learned basic doggy sign language, and eventually he turned the corner with trusting us and being a part of the family.   His little sister, Kiki, serves as Jack’s ears and, in return, he’s her muscle!  He is quite the entertainer with his quirky, goofy personality.  He is usually everyone’s favorite because he is so handsome and there is something very endearing about him, even though he is rather aloof. Now, more than six years later, he has made enormous progress and follows me everywhere.  He is my buddy!  

The Artist:  Martha Hooks, a Southerner by birth and choice, has always had dogs in her life.  Her memories of going to field trials with her dad as well as time spent in conformation rings with her Long Coat Chihuahuas helped expand her knowledge of canine anatomy, breed traits and personalities.  She paints full time and commissions are accepted, time permitting.  Of course, her favorite subjects wear fur coats year around.
