Artists mark 'Dog is for Life, not Christmas' campaign

Three of Britain’s best street artists - Jim Vision, Teddy Baden and Barney Zadok - have unveiled a street art collaboration with the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, Dogs Trust, designed to take its iconic slogan “A Dog is for Life, not just for Christmas” to a wider audience.

The artists were commissioned to create their very own artistic interpretation of the charity’s iconic slogan, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this December.

With slogans appearing on the streets of London, it is hoped the art will capture the attention of passers-by, reminding them of the slogan’s importance in the run up to Christmas and ultimately stop people from ‘impulse buying’ a dog.
