Dallas is a handsome four-year-old standard poodle who was surrendered to Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption when his owner didn’t want to pay to treat his broken leg. He was just a puppy when he arrived there, and his mom took him in as a temporary foster. Well…once you see his photos you’ll understand how he went from being a temporary addition to a permanent one in no time at all! Dallas is the poster boy for how ridiculously perfect shelter dogs can be – he’s great with people and other dogs and is incredibly well-mannered in the house.

He was also a complete ham for the camera with big brown eyes that just draw you in. There were so many sides to his personality – one minute he was bounding across a field chasing his ball, then flopped out on the bed and asking for a tummy rub. And apparently he’s also been working on his modeling skills – at one point during the session we plopped him in a chair and he struck three different poses all on his own, and held each of them for an incredible amount of time. What a ham!!

Laine Sweezey - Looking at your photos never ceases to amaze me. You are both talented and gifted. This dog is surely the reincarnation of a model! The shot of him going up in the air after a ball is remarkable! HAH, I wish the fool who gave that dog up could see these photos!!

Kelly Rousey - Leesia,

Thank you so much for capturing Dal’s true spirit. I particularly love the one of him in full repose on the bed.
