I take photos for an animal shelter and my blog is all about sharing the portraits and stories of the animals I meet :)

Ernie was trapped behind a wall for several days before his cries for help were finally heard. Our inspectors were called, and with the assistance of a fire and rescue team, the wall was broken through and Ernie was saved.

These photos were taken over a period of three months.

The first time was the day after Ernie was rescued. He could barely even move or eat, and you could be forgiven for thinking he was unlikely to make it through the night.

The next time was two weeks later when he was on the road to recovery, but with some very obvious war wounds around his jaw.

Finally, I saw him three months later when he was so big and healthy that you wouldn't even guess what he had been through. I couldn't believe the transformation.

The staff and foster carers that rescued and looked after Ernie over the past few months are all amazing people.

Spock and his Chinese crested siblings were born at the shelter after their mother was rescued from a neglectful home.

With each pup having their own distinctive tufts of fur to break up the baldness, they were definitely an eye-catching bunch and had a lot of people keen to adopt them.

Since this photo was taken, all of the pups have found homes with amazing owners.

Happy Easter, everyone! I don't have any Easter Bunnies to share today, but I do know a Beagle with a penchant for treats :)

Sadly, Spotty’s previous owner was no longer able to care for him and had to make the difficult decision to surrender him to the shelter.

Fortunately for Spotty, he found a new home a few weeks ago with two furry brothers that will help him lose some of his extra weight.

When Saxon found himself stuck down a drain, he did the only thing he could: cry out for help.

Luckily, someone passing by heard his cries and called our inspectors for assistance. This is Saxon in the hands of his rescuer when they were reunited a couple of weeks later.

Bouncer the Labrador's mother became infected with parvovirus while she was still pregnant, which meant that all of the pups in her litter were born with the virus. Incredibly, almost the whole litter survived, thanks to the amazing shelter vets that treated them and the pups’ will to survive.

I'm happy to say that Bouncer went home with his forever family today!

Baby Boots was born at the shelter after his then-pregnant mother, Dora, was shot with a hunting arrow. Thanks to the vets that saved their lives, Boots and Dora are now living in a new home where they can be safe from the threat of hunters.

Dora came into the shelter after being shot in the back by a hunting arrow. Fortunately, the arrow narrowly missed her spinal cord and major organs, but it was soon realised that treatment would be complicated by the fact that Dora was pregnant!

With the help of some amazing vets, Dora went on to a full recovery and later gave birth to twin kids. She’s now living a happy life in a new home with her son, Boots.

Hurley was surrendered to the shelter for misbehaving. What his owner didn’t realise at the time is that Hurley is deaf and simply couldn’t hear his owner’s commands.

Hurley was trained using sign language and went on to become a very well-behaved pup! He is now happy in his new home.
