A woman named Melissa Lentz fosters dogs through Releash Atlanta and has managed to take an impressive family portrait of eleven dogs, seven of which are fosters waiting for homes. Even more remarkable is that she has many more of these perfect photos. Lentz claims that she does not use food or treats to coax the dogs into sitting still; she simply tells them to look at her.
These portraits capture the fosters at an important time in their lives as they learn how to be comfortable in a home with the hopes of finding forever homes of their own. Lentz's photos are not only adorable but also emotional and remind us of the importance of fostering animals in need.
