15 Custom Pet Portraits That Give Your Furry Friend the Spotlight They Deserve
All pet owners know that when you live with a dog or cat, they take over your home fast. No, we're not just talking about all the hair embedded into the couch cushions (although seriously, how is there always so much?!). We're talking about all the smaller but still impressive ways animals integrate themselves into our spaces, from the cabinets devoted to food bowls and treat bags to the closets full of sweaters, booties, and unnecessary-yet-totally-adorable PJs.
And then, of course, there's the art emblazoned with your pet's face, because nothing says "member of the family" like custom pet portraits showcasing your furry friends in all their lovable glory.
For those unfamiliar, pet portraits are exactly what they sound like: paintings or other artwork featuring a pet (or multiple!) that can be displayed in your home for all to see. They can be customized however you like and are done in all different styles, from the super casual to the intricate and ornate; some portraits even depict their subjects in regal-looking garb, with hilariously commanding expressions to match.
If you're looking for a sweet, entertaining way to honor your pal's place in your life (or want to gift an animal-loving friend something special), pet portraits are the way to go. Below, we've rounded up 15 of the best custom options out there right now.
