Van Gogh, a one-eared dog in desperate need of a new home, ‘paints’ his way to adoption
Van Gogh, a one-eared pit bull, has created the ultimate “masterpiece” for himself: a forever home.
Jaclyn Gartner, founder and president of the foster-based Happily Furever After Rescue in Bethel, Connecticut, found Van Gogh on social media at a rescue shelter in North Carolina — and immediately fell in love with the injured pup.
“I saw him, and I was instantly in love. He just had the biggest smile and I thought, ‘I love this guy. I need him. I need this dog,’” Gartner told Fox News Digital.

Several years before this, Gartner founded Happily Furever After Rescue.
She did so after first rescuing and adopting her late dog, Tyler, an animal “that nobody wanted,” she said.
She then started volunteering with different rescues and decided she wanted to do more for rescue dogs, specifically animals that are overlooked, unwanted or misunderstood — which is why she loved Van Gogh so much.
The 7-year-old pit bull came from North Carolina.
There, he was a stray in the streets before a dog fighting circuit picked him up, claims a neighbor, as a “bait dog.”
