Everyone loves a puppy dog nose, and you can make a dog's snout last forever with a nose print necklace. Once you place your order, the artist will send you a mold kit to use on the dog's nose.

When you send the mold back, they will construct a unique sterling silver necklace with an imprint of the dog's nose. The dog nose necklace makes a sentimental and unique gift for those who treat their dogs like their children. 


For dog-loving hipsters, these Boston terrier earrings are a trendy way to express their passion. Realistic pictures of an adorable pup are on display in the front with gold backs and a metal stem.
