meet jed

post by leslie

This is Jed, and he is so much smaller than he looks in these photos! I mean, don’t get me wrong, he’s a strong guy. But he is such a petit dog in person! Jed is 3 and a half years old and is super duper snuggly. He loves attention, snuggling (did we mention that?) and long walks. He’s also amazingly smart and well trained. He’s good with dogs, cats and kids, so there’s really no reason not to bring him home!

And yes, his ears stay like that! One up and one down! I love it!

To see his adoption information, go here.

About this project

For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here. Also, special shout out to Lucy & Co. for donating all of the amazing bandanas!

oh venus!

post by leslie

Oh kids, you know I love me some BIG DOGS. And this girl qualifies! Weighing in at 120 lbs, she is the definition of a gentle giant.

Venus is six years old, and she’s not a big, strong, wild and crazy beast. She’s a quiet girl who will walk by your side and will bond with her owner. She wants to sleep in your bed (I hope you have a King!), snuggle with you relentlessly and maybe go for a car ride. She doesn’t do great with other dogs as she is very possessive of her food and her toys, so it would be great if she could be the only dog in the house. That said, she’s ok with older kids.

She’s well trained with sit, stay, speak and is learning fetch! She’s also crate trained, and her crate is included with the adoption. If you’re interested in bringing her home, you can get more information over here.

and here’s fynn

post by leslie

I photographed Fynn a few weeks ago and I’ve been waiting not very patiently to share him with you! He’s been off the internet and unavailable for adoption until now as his fosters were waiting for a clean bill of health from the vet, and now he has it! And you guys, just LOOK AT THAT SWEET FACE!

So you know how my dog Magda likes to jump up all over you all the time? Finn here likes to jump *up* but not *at* you. He appears to be coming at you, and then when he gets there, it’s the most gentle, dainty tap you’ve ever felt. And from that moment on, I was smitten.

Fynn here is 2 years old and came from Arkansas and really he just wants to keep you company and gaze at you all day long. Or maybe that’s what I want him to do. Anyway, his adoption information can be found here.

meet kingston

post by leslie

This is Kingston and he is 2 years old. But you guys? He plays like a puppy and he is a lot of fun! He came here from Arkansas. He’s super playful, loves to fetch and is getting better on a leash. He’s in good health, is crate trained, does ok with other dogs as long as he has a slow intro and he’s fine with kids. I mean, what a great dog! Go get this guy now!

For his adoption information, go here.

meet wash

post by leslie

This is Wash and OMG is he adorable! He’s about six months old and he just wants to play and play and snuggle. He’s house trained, he likes other dogs, he likes cats and he’s a pretty easy-going guy. While he might grow up to 50 lbs or so (maybe into those adorable ears?), he’ll probably always want to snuggle in your lap. Not a bad thing!
