A Chihuahua-rat terrier mix, Claire was rescued from the Carson shelter in 2006.  She has been certified as a Delta Society therapy dog and visited nursing homes and hospitals until she was diagnosed with canine intervertebral disc disease in 2011. She is being treated conservatively until funds are raised for a $6,000 surgery.

Artist Elizabeth Garcia lives with plenty of inspiration for her whimsical and endearing dog paintings: “five dogs with strong and hilarious personalities.”  Photos and a bio that owners give her, she captures a dog’s spirit and personality in a unique and unforgettable portrait.
