Dog Weathervane – Dachshund – Long Hair Walking – Portrait

Dachshund Weather Vane - Long Haired Walking


This Walking Long Haired Dachsund Weathervane is a portrait memorializing Mr. Deeds, a beloved family companion. From the photos they sent to help us ‘capture’ the little guy, we could see his bright, happy spirit. So that was our goal in this design. Because we make each of our weather vanes to order, you could personalize this design to be a portrait of your doxie.

Because this copper sculpture piece is a single figure, a medium size was sufficient for visual clarity and scale for the boathouse where it would be mounted. It is a detailed, swell-bodied construction. The glass eyes are brown. This customer optioned to have the collar, tag, and teeth gilded with gold leaf. The tag is inscribed ‘MR DEEDS’. Pennies were chosen to cap each end of the horizontal bar commemorating his lifespan.

Because the mounting location on the boathouse can get windy, an extra security device was requested. This is the little set of ‘ears’ above the upper globe on the mounting rod.

Portrait weathervanes are very popular. We have made many portraits of dogs, people, horses, and even vehicles. If you can send us photos we will happily make any subject into a portrait weathervane for you.
