This unique dog is able to sit in a fishing basket without moving for hours.
George, originally from Venezuela, earns his living by working as a “living statue” with the help of special makeup, elaborate costume and the ability to stand in one place for a long time and easily turns into a sculpture of a fisherman. And the integral and prettiest part of his image is Haspe, George’s favorite, able to sit without moving in a fishing basket for almost three hours (of course, with short breaks). The dog gets used to the role of fishing catch so well that he only allows himself to relax when his owner stops the role.
The sculpture depicted by George is a reference to fishermen fishing in the Caribbean.
His attire appears to be made of golden fish scales. At first, Haspe is difficult to notice, but then it is already impossible to look away from him. And it is Haspe that distinguishes the “statue” of George from all the others, because the cutie attracts the attention of the audience and even allows herself to be stroked.
However, it is still possible to distract him from work, and in this case, other dogs are to blame.
“He is very worried and starts to growl, but I taught him to remain calm, and he began to cope. But I always try to work in a place where there are not many other pets around,” says George.
Haspe lives with George for almost two years and all this time the cutie helps him with his work.
Haspe was only a month old when he began to live with George, and at first the owner left him at home when he left for work.
“But I felt very guilty for leaving my friend alone, so I decided to take him with me, but I never thought that he would become part of my work,” says George.
However, Haspe got used to the job very well. He calmly sat in the basket and even endured the presence of strangers trying to stroke him, so Haspe decided that he would be a great companion and even be able to bring something new to the image of his owners. And so it happened!
Animal rights activists don’t like George’s modern approach to “living statue” art, but he tries to calm them down.
“I know that Haspe loves to be close to me. And working with my dog is a wonderful and unforgettable experience that will never hurt him,” says George.
