Each time I visit the Franklin County Animal Shelter to photograph the dogs there seems to be one who just grabs my heart and that I can't get out of my mind.
This little black terrier was so frightened when he came in. He was pulling away from his handler and the rescue coordinator and slid on his belly into the room. He kept pushing himself on his belly right over to me. Then he stopped, curled up next to me for a second and let me rub his back, and then decided to climb up onto my lap. The rescue coordinator said he might need to go home with me. I can't tell you how much this dog instantly turned from scaredy cat to a loving and affectionate pup.
I can't stop thinking about him! If Colby would accept a second dog in her house (she won't - we've tried) I would have taken him with me right then. I hope he goes to a family who dotes on him and gives him all the attention and love he deserves. I hope that for all these dogs!
Look at this happy boy! He looks like he has some husky in him. That one beautiful blue eye caught my attention. His other eye is half blue, half brown. He's certainly one of a kind. And that smile! He is going to be an active happy companion to some lucky family.
I didn't get much time with this pup because he was too good at modeling! One shot with that big grin was all it took.
Please let me know if you adopt one of these pups -- I'd love to hear how they are doing!
