Meet handsome and adoptable Jax whose photo session was so much fun, thanks to his beautiful doggy disposition and his equally fantastic fosters. He is a lovely example of how dogs can live in the moment regardless of their challenges. Jax had to have both his eyes removed, but despite his recent blindness, he has a great zest for life, a heart of gold, and the nose of a bloodhound (he knew there were treats in my camera bag the moment he met me!).
I particularly have a soft spot for this sweet guy, because the first dog I ever had, Joey, ended up going blind at around the age of 7 and he absolutely amazed me with how he took it all in stride. He lived to be 15 and I actually often forget that he was blind for half his life because he still enjoyed it to the fullest. And I know Jax will as well.
This beautiful dog can be adopted through Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation.
Note: Jax was always on leash during his session (as are most of the adoptable dogs I photograph; leashes are edited out in the post processing).PS – shortly after Jax’s photographs from his session were posted, he found his forever family! I was happy to hear that the person who adopted him, said that his photos struck a chord and led her to him all the way from Edmonton. It makes me happy that my session with Jax played a small part in him finding a loving family! I hope you have the very best life, Jax! You deserve it. xox
