Photographer Sophie Gamand has been volunteering at animal shelters and rescues for about 9 years. Gamand travels around the country and takes pictures of dogs in need to help them find homes. One of her most known projects is called Pit Bull Flower Power, where she perfectly showed the gentle side of these often misunderstood doggos.
In 2016, Gamand visited the Calhoun County Humane Society in Anniston, Alabama. There, she photographed 54 dogs and most of them have since been adopted. But not Grey. In fact, he was brought there a few years before Gamand visited the place. And he’s still living there.
Recently, Grey sat down to pose for Emily Covington of Wags to Riches Photography, a group of volunteers who provide free photography services to shelters and rescues to increase positive outcomes for homeless animals.
When you put his newest portraits right next to the old ones, you immediately notice that the fur around Grey’s eyes and muzzle has become white, and his expression has gotten a bit more serious. Grey is getting older, and, sadly, it’s happening at a shelter.
This is Grey in 2016, two years after he ended up at the Calhoun County Humane Society in Anniston, Alabama
