You thought I was done? HA! I told you this project would be going on in a smaller fashion, and I’m going to kick that off today. My goal is to showcase a handful of dogs each month, and today is June 1, so let’s just get it started. (Don’t worry, next week will be back to normal.)
This is Dumpling and she is five. Just look at that sweet face! This was one of the most gentle and loving dogs I photographed. All she wanted was affection. She just cuddled up next to me and kissed me gently, and she is just looking for someone who will treat her with kindness.
We’re not sure of her background, but she is missing an ear, has damage to an eye and is riddled with scars. There might be bullet fragments in her skin. And after all that? She wants to sleep under the covers with you and shower you with kisses. She is calm and quiet, but not at all fearful. This sweetheart needs someone who will surround her with love and affection.
This girl has had some health issues that the rescue is working to get cleared up 100% before adopting her out, but they believe she’ll be ready in the next few weeks. Because she’s not technically up for adoption yet, she doesn’t have a page full of information. But if you are interested in adopting this lovebug, you can reach out to the rescue here or you can email one of their coordinators here.
About this project
For the month of May, I featured photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focused on dogs who needed homes. The project was so successful that I’m continuing it on a smaller scale throughout the year. 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!
