Black-and-white image of a dog standing on a cobblestone street. The dog is turned toward the right side of the image and facing the viewer. There are figures and cars in the background, which is out of focus. The dog has short, dark fur which is longer on the end of its tail, the bottom of its feet, and its head. The dog's body creates a dark shadow in the bottom of the image.
