Favorite Animals, My Dog Joey, Ellen Payne

Joey is an 8-year old half-ShihTzu / half Yorkie who came to live with me 7 years ago from a rescue society.  He has three normal legs and one not so normal.  It is shorter than the other three.  We think he must have been born that way rather than losing it in an accident, because it has a little paw pad and nail.  Since he has likely always been this way, it doesn't bother him.  He gets around just fine.  When he walks, you can detect a limp, but when he runs, he is like lightning.


  1. Joey is adorable and your drawing is so well done! It looks like colored pencil lines and I like the light hand and delicate feel to it!

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, it is done in colored pencil. My favorite medium. :)

  2. Cute sketch! Enjoyed reading about him.
