These Pawtraits Of Dogs Are Just Adorable

Sophie Gamand is a New York-based photographer who's already come to the internet's attention thanks to her wonderful Wet Dogs photo series.

She's now doing her bit to rehabilitate the image of pit bull terriers with her Flower Power photos. As she explains on her Instagram account: "In America we euthanize 1,000,000 #pitbulls every year!!! They are victims of our prejudices. I want the viewer to look at these beautiful dogs with a compassionate eye and an open heart."

Check out her adorable photos of the much-maligned breed - and some of her other great pictures of dogs, many of whom are up for adoption via Animal Haven or Sean Casey Animal Rescue - below...
