Every animal deserves to be loved, cared for, and respected. Regardless of how they appear. After all, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, not the scars we show to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, the real world isn’t constructed that way, and many people can’t see beyond a pet’s “ugliness” and want to adopt a more desirable animal.
Jenny-Jinya, aka Jenny Hefczyc, a German artist, portrayed this heartbreaking truth in her comic about a “ugly” dog that no one wants to take home with them. The comic was developed by the illustrator as a way to discuss how often people just look at the outside.
This one, like all of Jenny’s comics, has a bittersweet and surprising conclusion. Take a look for yourself, Pandas, and be sure to let us know how the storey affected you. We know you like Jenny’s work a lot.
Jenny told Bored Panda in an interview that she donates money to animal shelters every month and that the majority of her information about what goes on there comes from workers who interact with her digitally. “According to the messages I’ve received, several shelters had a difficult year last year. Because of Covid, several organisations have been unable to host fundraiser activities, resulting in a lack of donations,” says the author.

Jenny created another powerful comic. This one is about how people treat a shelter dog that looks different than everyone else
We can only guess, in the artist’s view, as to why so many people are concerned about the appearance of their future pets. “We all know that black cats and dogs are often overlooked for adoption because some people say they don’t photograph well. I get the feeling that it’s less about the chemistry between man and animal and more about how ‘photogenic’ the animal is.
When it came to the artist’s plans for 2021, she decided to keep things a little under wraps, so she said, “I can’t say too much yet, but there is a lot planned.” Not only in new comics, but also in print.” One thing is certain: we can’t wait to see what Jenny does next.
Jenny’s comic, which she released on Christmas Eve, was viewed by over 254.4k people. The artist has 469k Instagram followers and continues to attract new fans with her emotionally resonant art.
Her aim is to use her drawings to create worlds and tell stories. Jenny, like other musicians, does, however, take breaks. Because of the sensitivity of the subjects, the stories she writes necessitate a lot of study, which can be exhausting. So, after launching a new comic, she takes a few days off to relax.
