Sammy is one talented service dog. In addition to helping people in need, he has learned to paint! His paintings are used as a fundraising tool for Shore Service Dogs. His muttsterpieces fetch up to $1,700! Sammy was a stray mutt, but was taken in by Shore Service Dogs, where he received extensive training. His handler says that it was pretty easy to teach him to paint because he was so receptive to commands after his service training.
Sammy was on the Today show...but didn't do a whole lot of painting. Between falling asleep and chasing Al Roker, he did hit the canvas a few times. But he didn't drop the brush once!
