Danae, colored pencil drawing 2 for calendar

This is going to be February girl in a calendar I'm putting together with drawings of the shelter animals on the island of Santorini, Greece.The calendar will be for sale (details will be made known online), and all earnings will go to Santorini Animal Welfare Association (SAWA).

This beautiful 7-year old German Shephard named Danae, now lives at the animal shelter in Santorini.
She once belonged to locals who owned a gas station, where she was kept permanently on a short chain, as a watch dog. After a few years the gas station went broke and the owners left the island. They simply left poor Danae behind, still on her chain. After a while she grew so thin that her collar just dropped off, and she started to roam the streets. Luckily the people that work at the shelter found her and she is now well looked after, but she still bears the scars from the treatment she used to receive, she is always a little wary and afraid of people. But Danae is a caring dog, and she tends to look after 'new' dogs at the shelter.

If only a patient and kind someone looking for a slightly mature dog would give her a home...
