Blind Dog Learns to Paint, Helps Animal Shelter

Ad Feedback

Dogs are known for learning tricks like fetching a ball, sitting on command, or even jumping through a loop.

But Hallie the dog has taken her talent to new heights -- by learning to paint.

Dee Dee Murry, Hallie's owner, is an artist. She taught the dog how to use a paint brush a few years ago.

What makes Hallie's skills even more remarkable is that she's now blind, but still paints.

With Murry handing her the brushes and holding the paper, Hallie creates some impressive abstract paintings.

"I try not to make her paint too much because I don't want to burn her out. But so far, she hasn't wanted to stop. She just loves it," Murry said.

Hallie has her own website for selling the paintings. All the proceeds go to Purple Heart Rescue, an animal shelter based in Washington state.
