Another batch of puppies and dogs available for adoption from Vancouver Animal Control. You can see the animals they have available at PetFinder.com (not just dogs but rabbits, lizards, and at times even more strange things).  You can also see previous shelter dogs I photographed here.  Don't buy a pet through Craigslist or other online sources, adopt a pet from your local animal shelter.

When needed, I try to help out at the local animal shelter (Vancouver Animal Control) by taking photos of their dogs available for adoption.  I believe the quality of the photos makes a difference in the dogs adoption so I’m happy to help out when I can.  It helps me and helps the dogs.  You can see the animals they have available at PetFinder.com (not just dogs but rabbits, lizards, and at times even more strange things).  You can also see previous shelter dogs I photographed here.

Yesterday, I went to the shelter to photograph a litter of puppies.  They look like little polar bears, so damn cute.

There were a few new faces on my most recent visit, some great dogs.  I started off with a cute beagle, very friendly and loves to play.  When he runs his ears flap around like he is trying to fly :)

This young girl took some work, was more interested in the dogs around her than getting photos taken.

A black lab likely won't last long down there, always popular.

But the tables were turned on the little guy when we put him in with the boxer.  Oh crap, I'm out of here!

Shelter Dogs : 2012-06-23 : Chase 3

 

Make a move sucker...

Shelter Dogs : 2012-06-23 : Chase 4

 

Oh crap, I guess that's the move.

Better hide in here for a bit. (No beagles were harmed in the making of these photos :) )

And finally, when I got home I decided to get a few shots of my own dogs.  Jammie will always sit for the camera, a good and obedient dog.

Cedric is an old and grumpy guy, wanted no part of it.

Cedric does not care

The three puppies on this page are very cute and friendly, they all tried to crawl into my lap as I was taking photos.  They have the most amazing crystal blue eyes I have ever seen!  But first, this young German Shepherd.  Playful and energetic, loves to play fetch.

For anyone curious, this was the fist time I shot dogs at the shelter with my Nikon D800. I used the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 lens but I think next time I'll try a 50mm f/1.8 prime. Overall, I have some learning to do with the focus system of the D800 but it is producing great images.

The little husky puppies are still there, and still cute.  The first dog today was Root Beer, a very active but loving young pit bull.

 

At one point go got a case of the zoomies.

 

This girl likes to lean on you while getting some attention, I don't think she knows how big she is.

 

Coming in for my close up.

 

 

 

A young shih tzu, very playful.

 


This guy looks grumpy, is missing a tooth, but he is a friendly giant.

 

And a new litter of puppies!  Furry face ones too, my favorite

My favorite dog of the day, this hyper little puppy Spotz.  He can't sit still for more than two seconds, so it's amazing I got any decent photos of him at all.

I don't think this black lab will be there long.

 

Cute little Boston Terrier, he jumps around like a maniac.

 

My favorite dog of the day, a blue heeler.

He kept trying to climb into my lap.

 

Hound dog.

 

They don't always want to cooperate.

 

The fuzzy Rottweiler.

 

Funny dome head, but cute.

 

Almost every dog was black, the hardest to photograph!

 

Fuzz face puppies, so cute! 4 of them, they look like little Ewoks.

 

And a few bunnies too, even with fancy hair.

Every now and then, I help out at Vancouver Animal Control by taking photos of their dogs available for adoption.  I believe the quality of the photos makes a difference in the dogs adoption so I'm happy to help out when I can.  I haven't done this too many times, but I hope to continue as it helps me and helps the dogs.  You can see the animals they have available at PetFinder.com (not just dogs but rabbits, lizards, and at times even more strange things).  Today I met a few great dogs, and I even had a Jack Russel nut me so I can check that off the bucket list.

Very cute but somewhat wild puppy :)
