The Perfect Mix

cover .jpg

I love dogs.

I love little dogs, big dogs, fluffy dogs, old dogs, fast dogs…………. I love them all.

But not everyone feels the same way.

Unless you have a fear or a strong dislike of dogs most people would crack a smile if a golden retriever came ambling towards them. It’s often a different story though if the dog is a mixed breed – especially something like a staffy/lab mix.

I am not an animal behaviourist, dog trainer, vet or indeed any sort of animal care expert, but being a pet photographer for several years I’ve seen a lot of interactions with dogs and heard a lot of anecdotes that have really got me thinking!

And I think mixed breed dogs need some positive PR. So I created this book.

I photographed over 60 beautiful, mixed breed dogs with the aim of showing that the term “mixed breed” covers a huge range of dogs from the tiny to the giant, shy to out-going, purpose-bred or the lucky dip surprise – each one it’s own unique masterpiece.

These dogs are all loved members of a family.

“Mixed Breed” is just a name – it’s not something to be feared.
