"In this book, photographer Traer Scott presents over fifty endearing and frequently heartrending portraits of shelter dogs. These images capture the genuine spirit of dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds, and temperaments, whether playful, proud, inquisitive, or shy. Above all, these photographs reveal the strikingly intense emotion, dignity, and even humor that Scott saw in each face, despite the dog's circumstances. By documenting the soulful, unique characters of just a few of the hundreds of dogs she has encountered in her volunteer work, Scott raises awareness of animal rescue and welfare causes, and particularly the need for more adoptive homes for abandoned animals. This collection of portraits is a tribute to all dogs and will appeal to animal lovers every where."--BOOK JACKET.
