Anything else you'd like to add: TJ is a super loving, snuggly dog who really wants to connect with and do what people want him to.
That fluff on the top of his head, the floppy ears, the way his tongue sits perfectly over his lower canines. TJ was a funny duck to photograph. He's wearing his leash because he couldn't quite figure out what it was we were asking of him. I get it.
TJ was in foster at the time of his session. I was trying to get new-into-foster dogs into the sessions as soon as possible because once they got adopted, I knew it would be more difficult to get them back. Debbie, his foster mom - in fact all of the foster humans - were so helpful in allowing the dogs in their care to participate. Such a cool, supportive community.
TJ is a a survivor of the #thunderbay12.
