A few months ago some equally passionate people and myself joined forces to start Team Dog. Our mission is to promote sensible, science-driven animal welfare practices, and help to support people, pets, and communities as a whole. We hit the ground running and we’ve been having great success in making a difference. If I did a recap on what we’ve been up to it would be about five pages long, so please go to our Facebook page for full details of what we’ve achieved thus far. Below are a few galleries of the photos I took for each campaign.

Team Dog have been invited to appear on Studio 10 on Monday morning for a panel discussion on pit bulls. It’ll be on Channel Ten at 10.30am – set a reminder so you don’t miss it.

Not only was February a short month, it was also a month where it rained nearly every time I was available to do adoption photos! So this month’s post is smaller than usual. There are still plenty of lovely little faces for you to fall in love with though.

Full listings for all the dogs are on the Fetching Dogs website. Bok Choy, the Chinese Crested, has already been adopted (by a friend of mine!).

As a previous Husky owner and having spent the last couple of years doing adoption photos for Arctic Breed Rescue I didn’t have high expectations of turning up to my shoot with Kara and being met with a cooperative dog – and she didn’t prove me wrong!



In her defense, she’s 15 years old and her senses aren’t what they used to be so she couldn’t hear my silly noises, smell my tasty treats or see me jumping and waving. It was a beautiful evening at a stunning location so I just took my time and tried to make the experience as un-scary as possible for her.



You’re never too old for cuddles with Mummy.


Kara is quite camera shy so when she did eventually look at the camera and smile we all whooped with excitement!


These two have been in each other’s lives for over 15 years. A blind man could see how much they adore each other and I feel very lucky to have been able to capture these moments for Kirsten to cherish forever.


Apparently after they got home that night Kara had no problem hearing that her dinner was ready. Gotta love that selective hearing!


I’ve had “new website” on my to-do-list for well over a year now. In fact, as I keep handwritten lists, it’s been scrawled on more pieces of paper than I care to count. I asked around a few times trying to find someone to make it for me but I couldn’t find anyone suitable within my budget. Since I managed to make and maintain this blog single-handedly I decided to tackle the mammoth task of making a new site on my own. It’s been a lot of hard work and late nights and will probably cost me a fortune in osteo visits, but it’s finally finished, yay!! Have a look and let me know what you think?

If you find any typos or broken links (I hope you don’t!), please let me know.
