It's no secret that pitbulls often get a bad, undeserved rep. Since they are naturally strong animals with protective instincts, the breed is often used for the terribly inhumane practice of dog fighting, hence their "tough dog" stereotype. However, plenty of pitbull moms and dads know that these dogs just want to be loved and spoiled - and that, beyond their rep, these dogs are actually total sweethearts.
Lynn, who herself has owned pitbulls, used her photography to showcase just that. She put two adorable pits in a photobooth to see what they would do when they were alone and the result was so. Freakin. Precious. The dogs above are named Bumper and Willis, rescued fighter dogs who are now BFFs to their beloved humans - not to mention very cute models! These photos appear in Lynn's new book Tails From the Booth, which features mostly rescue dogs hanging out and being cute with their best dog buddy.
Seeing cute photos of pitbulls may not seem earth-shattering, but it does help remind people that breeds don't always deserve the bad reputation they get. If people start seeing pitbulls as the sweet dogs they can be, perhaps more people will be encouraged to adopt these often at-risk dogs from shelters. A great photo can cause a shift in perspective, and Lynn's sweet pics may be the thing that pitbulls need right now.
