“Stockings” was photographed for the Walton County Animal Control shelter on December 19, 2017 and placed on the shelter’s adoption website, www.waltonpets.net.
Monday, 11:27 AM – “Noel” was a gorgeous girl that was picked up stray by a Walton County Animal Control officer on December 14, 2017. She was quite the unique looking girl with the narrow body and facial conformation of a Greyhound, and the merle coat of a Catahoula. When her ears were back, she looked almost like a pure-bred sight hound.
She had obviously had a tough go at life so far. She was very underweight when she arrived at the shelter (which added to her Greyhound-like appearance), had runny stools, and tested heartworm positive. A quick deworming at intake and several healthy meals through the weekend got her quickly on the mend. The heartworms would take some treatment, but with pledges rolling in from generous sponsors, her rescue hopefully wasn’t an impossibility.
The lifting fog created a giant soft-box over the late morning sun creating some great lighting to capture this girls beautiful merle coat and golden brown eyes.
"Noel" was photographed for the Walton County Animal Control Shelter in Monroe, Georgia on December 18, 2017 and placed on the shelter's website, www.waltonpets.net for adoption or rescue. She still awaits a new home.
Wednesday, 10:10 AM – “Ursula” was a gorgeous, white pittie mix with blue eyes that was picked up stray by Walton County Animal Control on November 22, 2017. Her microchip revealed that she had been adopted from Gwinnett County Animal Control and was already spayed.
The shelter contacted her owner who said they’d come to the shelter to claim her. But after a full week, nobody had showed up. In fact, there were some social media postings stating that she was seen being dumped out of a truck.
“Ursula” made her photography session easy. All the white dogs turn out so well since their bright coats normally allow quicker shutter speeds. She also sat so calm and patiently as I fired away.
“Ursula” was photographed for the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, Georgia on November 29, 2017 and put on the shelter’s website, www.waltonpets.net, to be rescued or adopted if her owner didn’t show up to claim her. She was adopted on December 2, 2017!
Wednesday, 10:24 AM – this playful little low-rider pup came into Walton County Animal Control on November 27, 2017. They said they found him two days prior but couldn’t find his owner. Being a happy, short-legged, smallish-sized dog he’d hopefully get adopted quickly.
I switched to a wider angle lens to capture the fact that he was still a small puppy. When using the 70-200mm, it can make the smaller dogs look a little bigger.
He was happy to play and run around my feet, so I placed him up on an outdoor table to get his cute shots with toy in mouth!
“Elf” was photographed on November 29, 2017 for Walton County Animal Control in Monroe, Georgia and put on the shelter’s website, www.waltonpets.net, to wait for adoption or rescue. He was rescued on November 30 by Burlington County Animal Alliance of New Jersey! His rescue was sponsored by generous donations to the rescue group from Lane and Anne!
Tuesday, 10:44 AM – “Storm” was picked up stray by a Walton County Animal Control officer on November 20, 2017. Because of the Thanksgiving week, she didn’t have a fair crack at being advertised for adoption. But her turn for a glamour photo session came up today.
In her kennel, “Storm” was a quiet and sweet girl. But upon getting outside, I see why the officer gave her that name! She was so excited to get outside and was 100 miles-per-hour the whole time. It was only when she got tangled in the bushes that I was able to snap a few photos.
This sweet girl had some scars all over her nose. Unfortunately that would probably scare some people off. But in the interaction pen with a couple of other dogs she was all play.
“Storm” was photographed on November 28, 2017 for Walton County Animal Control in Monroe, Georgia and put on the shelter’s adoption website, www.waltonpets.net. She got a long-distance rescue from Hornell Area Humane Society of New York on December 8, 2017. Her trip up north was sponsored by donations to the rescue from Anne, Lane, Cindy, Alice, Kay, Gael, and Audrey!
