Meet Milou! As soon as I photographed this girl, I could think of 3-4 friends who would love to bring her home. But she was adopted 2 days later!
This girl is a one year old shih tzu mix. She was found in the mountains of Kentucky and was in foster for a few weeks learning how to live with a family again. She’s super friendly and super smart and loves to play with her dog toys. She doesn’t do well with tiny kids, but loves older ones. She’s ok with other dogs, but does guard her food, so she’s working on that.
I’m so happy someone brought her home!
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.
