Inspiring Photos of Pets with Disabilities


A few weeks back we shared Carli Davidson’s dramatic images of canines mid-shake with you. Now, the talented pet photographer is back with a new book project that was inspired by a beautiful wheelchair-bound German Shepherd that she spotted happily playing fetch with its owner. “I thought a lot about this pair in the following weeks, and decided I wanted to create project showcasing differently abled pets and telling their stories in order to show the world that they are happy, thriving companions,” she explained to My Modern Met. “They are not sad, they are not in pain, and the owners and animals continue to be a great value to one another.” Click through to check out a few early images from the series, which Davidson hopes will lead to “a greater acceptance of these pets.”
