One of the highlights of photographing so many beautiful BADRAP pit bulls for My Mutt posters these past few weeks has been getting to know a number of dogs rescued from Michael Vick’s Bad Newz Kennels in 2007. Last week I met Jonny Justice and Uba, now both adopted and living in loving homes in San Francisco, along with Jonny’s friend Lily, another pit bull. We went to Crissy field first for some beach shots and then headed back to Jonny’s place.
Let me just say that these guys are a ton of fun to be around. Jonny has near-constant grin and loves to play. He likes his quiet time too, though, and once a month he works with kids as part of Paws for Tale, a program where children gain confidence by reading aloud to dogs like Jonny. Uba seems a bit more reserved at first but has a serious vertical leap (both in and out of the tailgate) and definitely gives Jonny a run for his money (Uba’s mom told me he runs on a special treadmill at home)
Check em’ out and let us know what shots you like for the poster…
