Jaxx* Face

Jaxx* Available for Adoption @


This has been a particularly brutal summer for the shelters & rescues here in Las Vegas. Normally we average over 100 dogs a day surrendered at our local high kill shelter. This year it is approaching 200. Don’t take my word for it, here is the director of AF on Channel 13 News describing the situation:


"We are seeing close to 200 new animals coming in every day," says Andy Bischel, The Animal Foundation's Director of Development. "We hold these animals for 72 hours minimum and then we try getting them out to adoptions. You can see we're holding 800-1,000 animals at any given time."


The "Adoption Bungalows" hold 260 dogs. On a good day they may adopt out 30. I'll let you do the math on the odds for the rest.


GSRLV has pulled as many as seven GSD's at a time this year, many at the last minute, and consequently is swamped with great dogs like Jaxx* here.

Went all Hollywood on this with Calvin Hollywood's "Photographer Project" Tutorial on Kelby Training, turning the black background blue with non destructive adjustment layers, can now change the light dot, color or saturation at will. Substituted Topaz's ReMask for the Quick Select tool portion of the show though...
