From owners Robin and Stefan:
Dante came to us heavily traumatised and scarred and it took him quite a while to regain some trust in people. It’s still an ongoing process.
Once he’s feeling comfortable and safe though, he can become this very mischievous dog who loves to poke people in the back with his long nose. He’ll wave his tale when he manages to startle you.  He’ll always look down and act demure when given sudden attention. He often has a sort of fragile expression which only makes him more beautiful than he already is.   It’s astonishing Sarah captured all this in a single painting, she managed to capture both his temperament and brindle beauty. We fell in love with this painting the moment we saw it!
