These Dog Carousel Seats by Tim Racer Support the Rescuing of Pitbulls

Artist and pet lover Tim Racer ingeniously combined his passion for restoring 19th century wooden carousel seats and rescuing pitbulls with these wooden canine carousel sculptures.

Racer's talent with wood carving is unbelievably breathtaking. He is able to carve remarkably realistic and life-sized animals from various blocks of wood and turn them into vintage Victorian-looking carousel seats. Because Racer is co-founder of an organization that works to rescue mistreated pitbulls, called BADRAP, his latest collection of carousels have all been dog-themed. The carousel seats creatively replace the iconic pony seats with different breeds of dogs that look like they're heroically running in the wind. Each seat is hand-painted using a bold range of colors.

Racer's latest carousel canine is molded after his own puppy.
