    Looking for that perfect holiday gift? This is an 8×10″ print of a drawing by artist Lauren Heimbaugh of Beware of Trees Creations of the Missoula Police Department’s K9 Halo, a German Shepherd. 50% of the proceeds are donated to Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. Place your order:https://www.etsy.com/…/german-shepherd-police-k9-drawing-pr…

    K-9 Halo has been with the Missoula Police Department since February of 2012. He is certified in Narcotics, Patrol and Tracking. “Being a K-9 handler means Halo and I spend more time together than we do with anyone else, including our family. The bond becomes incredibly strong and it’s difficult to think of someone trying to seriously hurt him. We were fortunate to have a local police supply store donate a vest to help keep Halo safe. He is a valued member of our department and we are really happy to be a small part of helping another K-9 stay protected.” says Handler Tim Harrington.

    From artist Lauren Heimbaugh: The goal of these print sales is to help raise funds for a bullet and stab protective vest for a police K9 in the US. 50% of the money raised by sales will go to Vested Interest in K9s Inc, a non-profit out of the Boston area that does just this. I’ve done this before with a previous drawing following the Boston Marathon tragedy and would love to help out once more. But I need your help to do so! (I am also selling a 5×7″ version of this print for $4.00 in my store)
