Black-and-white image of a dog walking across an asphalt surface. The dog is walking toward the left side of the image, and it has short, light-colored fur and a very short tail. The dog's proper right leg is extended in front of its body, and it is lifting its head as though howling or barking. The dog's body creates a dark shadow in the lower portion of the image and there is only asphalt visible in the background.
