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

4 years ago

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.

Bright Side put together 25 of the most powerful of Gamand’s photos that will make you want to adopt a Pit Bull right away.

This is my Pit Bull named Fixer, all of my friends are scared of him but he never bit anyone in his life. Pit Bulls will only attack if they feel threatened or if they were abused by their previous owner.

I'm from those people who are scared of Pit Bulls. If I see them I try to keep a distance and also never touch these dogs.

I love dogs in general but these guys seem actually dangerous to me :(
