A NYC Photographer Captures Pit Bulls in Flower Crowns to Save the Lives of These “Dangerous” Dogs

For many years, Pit Bulls have been demonized by society for being aggressive toward people and other animals. As a result, they often get abused, abandoned by their owners, and doomed to stay in shelters for the rest of their lives. To destroy this unfair reputation, photographer Sophie Gamand started a project called Pit Bull Flower Power. Since 2014, she’s been traveling around the USA to take photos of shelter Pit Bulls in need of adoption and sharing them on social media. Her charming portraits of the dogs wearing flower crowns have completely changed their fate and have helped people to look at these dogs in a new, softer light.
