London, March 26: A three-year-old Pekingese dog's unique brand of abstract expressionism has made it a big shot in the art world.
Ziggy, from Fallbrook, America, has been creating works of art since 2007.
Unlike many struggling artists, it is facing no problem selling his paintings.
Each of its paintings is said to be selling for as much as 171 pounds.
Ziggy's owner Elizabeth Monacelli, a violin instructor, attaches a paintbrush to the end of a paper roller, which the dog either bites into or attaches to its nose to paint on canvas.
"He enjoys painting but has to be in the right frame of mind for it," the Telegraph quoted Elizabeth as saying.
She has revealed that it takes Ziggy days or weeks to finish a canvas because the little dog only seems to carry his artistic inspirations for a minute or two at a time.
"He'll go for a while then just roll himself into a little ball and start snoring," she said.
"Or he wanders off looking for snacks," she added.
