BSL Dog Model Search
in light of the remarkable tale of Patrick, (the pit bull mix puppy who was abused by neglect and thrown down a garbage chute), Ginger (the GTA pit bull sentenced to death row) and all of the other heartbreaking stories circulating in the media in North America right now, i wanted to give all the beautiful and loving dogs out there a chance to have their stories told.
“dogs are an honest reflection of their humans and their environment. i believe that every dog that is given love gives it right back.” ~ M. Leeder
are you ready to help me shed some light on the dogs you know and love, that are being ignorantly stereotyped and getting a bad rap in society?
Enter my Model Search for a BSL Recognized Dog to be part of a very special project that is in the works.
if you are interested, available and able to travel to Toronto next week (between April 19-21, 2011) for a photo shoot with Marcia Leeder Photography, please copy and paste the following questions below and answer them in an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: BSL Model Search).
due to the high volume of emails expected to be received, at this time i will only be contacting the family chosen (on Monday April 18th, 2011).
