When the Twin Towers collapsed, Appollo, this brave German Shepherd was drafted in to help with 9/11 rescue operations, he was the first search and rescue dog on the scene. Appollo worked for the K-9 unit of the New York Police Department and laboured under intense conditions 18 hours a day to search for injured victims. This beautiful German Shepherd had to be washed daily to get rid of any harmful substances on his body and at the same time he lifted the spirits of other helpers who watched him tirelessly search for victims. This amazing brave German Shepherd dog was awarded the Dickin medal for bravery in 2002.
All of our pet portraits including this lovely German Shepherd in Uniform portrait are expertly painted using Winsor & Newton oils. Once completed we will email you a high-resolution photograph of your dog’s portrait for your approval. If you would like slight amendments made, please just let us know, we want you to be thrilled with your dog in uniform portrait. When the oils have sufficiently dried we can then deliver your painting to you. The whole process should take between 4 – 6 weeks.Back to Portfolio
