Also they are light and small enough to decorate almost any space in the house, car or work area. Where ever you might need a friendly face to greet you.
You choose the breed, coloring and eye and nose color. Write in the notes, when checking out, any specifications , such as standing or sitting. It will take two weeks to complete. For beloved pets, a photo is helpful. Send photos through etsy conversation or to my email at wireartink [!at] gmail.com
Dogs size range around 5x5 inches, which is a little over the size of the palm of your hand. The dogs construction begins with a free hand wire skeleton which is wrapped with stainless steel plastic coated, floral wire that is painted with enamel paint. The paint is coated with a clear sealant and will not rub off or run when wet. Glass beads are used for the eyes and nose. The structure is solid enough to with stand many falls. The legs will bend when direct pressure is put on them but they will easily go back into place without breaking.
