Real Men Rescue

Friend and coworker Kirsten and her husband Matt are dedicated volunteers for Pinups for Pitbulls, an advocacy non profit committed to raising awareness against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and Breed Discriminatory Laws (BDL), while restoring the pitbull reputation.

I actually have Kirsten to thank for pushing me to adopt a dog this time last year. I was nervous that Patrick and I couldn't make it work with our schedules, or our incomes, but I'm so glad I gave into her peer pressure. Dasha is a gift, and owning her has certainly opened my eyes to the harm caused by the ignorance and misinformation that surrounds the pitbull breed. 

I got to spend an afternoon taking photos of Matt and the couple's two pitbulls, Minka and Batman (see: ears), for a submission to the 2016 Real Men Rescue calendar. I took way too many photos, but here are some of my favorites.
