Shadow

By deesel
This big guys name is Shadow. He's a 14 year old rescue dog and just a big gentle giant. I was asked to take some images of him as sadly his owner doesn't think he has long left Sad
6 months ago he had an operation on one his his rear legs and so he can't walk too far. I feel so sad for him as even at 14 and not keeping well and with a bad leg he just wants to play. I guess that's one of the reasons I love dogs. For most of this shoot I was holding a stick to keep his attention.
I was a little bit nervous beforehand due to Shadows situation and being aware of the difficulty of shooting all black dogs. I'm far from impressed by any of the photos I got, but the owner is happy and thats the main thing. It was def an experience and can't wait to try it again.

Thanks

he looks happy...I like this shot it's very expressive. It's amazing how dogs are always ready to play even at an old age.
thanks for Shadow's telling story.
