Incredible One-Handed Woman Makes Dead Dogs Come Alive (14 photos)

At Dog Fence DIY we have always taken pride in providing dog owners with a variety of resources on every possible topic related to dog ownership. Our in-house vet has written extensively on dog bereavement and her work is regularly quoted by many publications. Recently while updating our guide we came across the most incredible artist and we can’t help it but share her work with you. She is a kind and gifted soul able to bring healing and comfort to pet owners in a very unique way.

Tammy Hendricks was born with only one hand, yet she creates soft sculptures of dogs with such attention to detail and realism that at first one might think it is the work of a taxidermist. Tammy creates dog sculptures using the finest materials such as Alpaca and Mohair, to make her sculptures as life-like as possible Tammy creates a frame out of wire and adds metal and plastic beads to match the weight to the original weight of the pet she is duplicating.

Her work is nothing less than amazing and worth every penny.

Her work is exquisite and haunting, let’s take a look:
