Exposure to turpentine can occur via inhalation, ingestion, and skin absorption.
No adverse effects were noted in dogs exposed to 180 ppm for 3.5 hours/day for 8 days [ACGIH 1986, p. 615]; however, raising the concentration to 818 ppm and exposing the dogs for 3.5 to 4.5 hours caused nausea, incoordination, mild paralysis, and weakness [Clayton and Clayton 1981, p. 3245].
If it is oil based (I assume this otherwise a hose would do the job) use baby oil, lots of baby oil it dilutes the paint and won't kill the poor little bugger. Massage it into the fur in large volumes, give it a few minutes to go to work and then warm soapy water, use a disposable tub, NOT your bath!
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Rub vegetable oil into the paint, then wash the lot out with soap and water - it will disolve the paint and is much less harsh than turps or white spirit - it's the only thing I use to clean my hands after painting
