Boxer Pup Oil Painting by Judy Mackey

"Boxer with Pink Ribbon"
5 x 5 inches, Oil on board

This was a commission from a client who wanted to me to paint her friend's Boxer puppy.  The friend had been diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing treatment and so my client asked that instead of painting dog tags to add the breast cancer symbol as a tag. 

Thank you for visiting.  If you'd like to commission a pet portrait please visit and contract me through my website:

Hi Judy,

Sorry I have been away from visiting your blog. I love this boxer pup. My daughter has two boxers that are older now, but my gosh, you certainly have captured this wonderful breed.
All the best to you .

What a beautiful portrait! Look at those eyes, just lovely. And that's a fantastic idea to use the breast cancer symbol for the tag. I've just found your blog and really love all of your work. :)

Joan - thank you - though I've never owned Boxers, I do love the breed - have had many friends who've had them. Despite their "gruff" appearance, they are sweethearts.

Cyrstal - thank you, I appreciate you visiting my blog.

Yvonne - thank you for your kind words.
