These Flowery Pet Portraits Will Change The Way You Look At Pit Bulls
No other breed of dog is as unfairly maligned as pit bulls, considered even among normally level-headed dog lovers to be an naturally aggressive breed. But more than suffering from an inherently dangerous temperament, the prejudice around pits largely stems from an image problem -- one of spiked collars and chains for leashes.
And sadly, this misperception is all too often a deadly one. Every year, around a million pit bulls are put down in shelters across the country since they are generally thought of as the least likely to find a forever home.
In hopes of changing the way folks look at these lovable potential pets, dog portrait photographer Sophie Gamand recently set out to capture pit bulls' softer, sweeter side.
