Vinny + Zeus
Breed: Mixed (mini pinscher, Irish setter, toy breed)
Weight: 18-20 Lbs.
Age: 3 years
Adoption Location: Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter
Favorite Toy: Tog-o-war, soft stuffed animals
Favorite Activity: Walks and lap time
Other: Vinny is a very friendly and affectionate and loves to sit in your lap. He is a mellow, cuddly little mutt.
I knew Diane when she first adopted Vinny. He originally came from a reservation with a bad case of mange. She was able to look through his patchy coat and balding paws to see the lovable little dog he is. Diane nursed him back to health and now Vinny is happy, loved, and healthy.
Vinny is such a loving dog and has so much personality. The hardest part about taking his picture was to keep him from running right up to me. I may have fell in love just a bit during this shoot.
Breed: Border collie
Weight: 50 Lbs.
Age: 1 almost 2 years old
Favorite Toy: Tennis ball, sticks
Favorite Activity: Chasing balls, fetching newspaper, running
Other: Zeus is a super energetic dog who is not aggressive but protective of his family and house. He can take a bit of time to warm up to strangers and young kids.
Zeus was apprehensive of me at first. I gave him space and let him focus on his owner Mark. But, buy the end of the shoot he was willing to let me throw the tennis ball for him. He has so much energy; it makes me tired, just watching him!
Zeus was a little more challenging to take photos of. Treats did not interest him, not when there was a tennis ball around, and he only had eyes for Mark. Even when I tried to make funny noises to get his attention, he stayed pretty focused on his “job” of ball retrieval. I loved his working spirit and his beautiful golden eyes.
