LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennyroyal Studio announces the latest Signature Collection collaboration with canine behaviorist Cesar Millan and star of the NatGeo WILD TV show, Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan. The Signature Collection has raised close to $200,000 for various charities since its launch in 2009. Continuing its success, Pennyroyal Studio and Cesar Millan have teamed up to release a pendant featuring a replica paw print from Millan's pit bull ambassador "Daddy" who was a fixture and companion on Dog Whisperer until his death in February 2010. Proceeds from all sales benefit The Cesar Millan Foundation's DEAR Fund, which provides aid to dogs in need of special care due to abuse, violence, and man-made or natural disasters.
"Daddy was a huge inspiration to me and all of the lives he touched," says Cesar Millan. "This pendant is not only a commemoration of Daddy and everything he represents, but also a reminder for everyone who wears it to live in the moment, project calm-assertive energy, and be a great pack leader."
Cesar Millan is among many talented people who have worked with Pennyroyal Studio's Signature Collection in releasing designs to benefit charity. Pennyroyal Studio's designer, Tim Foster says, "This release is very exciting for me because I've been a dog lover for a long time and my dog, Bear, is at my feet every day while I create my designs. Cesar's show has certainly taught me about how to keep him a happy and healthy member of the family. It's an honor to work with Cesar and the Cesar Millan Foundation to raise money for the DEAR Fund."
The uni-sex Cesar Millan Daddy Paw Print Pendant will be available to order from June 14th through July 13th, with proceeds benefiting The Cesar Millan Foundation's DEAR Fund. The handcrafted paw print design will come in three style options: bronze on leather cord, sterling silver on leather cord, and sterling silver on a silver chain. An impression of Cesar's signature is on the back of every pendant and prices range from $60 to $110, available exclusively from www.pennyroyalstudio.com.
