A few weeks ago, my friend Tara Sutherland and I photographed the gorgeous Kiya for her adoption photos. I have photographed dozens of dogs for DC Rescue Dogs over the past couple of years that I have been working with them, but Kiya was different. Kiya, like so many other dogs we meet, was the result of backyard breeding. Despite a huge list of health problems which would fill an encylopedia, Kiya had a smile on her face and posed up a storm for us. I fell in love with her like everyone else that met her in her short few months of life.
This is Kiya’s story.
