Do you have a London Retired Police Dog with a story to tell?
We are delighted to have teamed up with pet portrait artist, Elizabeth De Broise who is starting a sketchbook project inspired by working dogs to be displayed in the permanent collection in the Brooklyn Art Library in NEW YORK!
To be in with a chance for your dog to be sketched, simply send us an email with a few photos and details of your dog along with anything particularly amazing they have done during their careers and Elizabeth will select the lucky winners from entries received. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Closing date is Friday 31st July.
