Where can one acquire a painting by the great canine artiste Netop?

The art of Netop the Painting Pooch is in such demand that the canine crusader has raised more than $20,000 for charity, said Jacqueline Karch, Netop’s pet human.

Netop was a rescue dog who turned up at New Hanover County Animal Control nine years ago. He’s a mixed breed with a good bit of Miniature Pinscher in him.

He donated more than 50 oxygen masks for pets to area fire departments after he took part in a fundraiser at the Children’s Museum of Wilmington in 2007.

Karch said people are welcome to buy paintings by Netop. If he’s not working toward a fundraiser, the money goes into a bank account and is kept for various worthy causes.

When a stray dog showed up in Netop’s Brunswick County subdivision one day, Netop paid to send him to the veterinarian. The dog was subsequently adopted by one of Netop’s neighbors.

Netop paid the vet bills for another stray found by a friend of the family, bills that turned out to be greater than anticipated because the dog was very ill.
