A Tale of Resilience
Rescued from the harrowing clutches of the Chinese dog meat trade, this brave soul now thrives in the loving embrace of her humans in the UK. As I  followed Mushu through the lush greenery, it became evident that this furry friend was not only relishing his newfound freedom but also cherishing the precious bond she shares with his loving humans. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.

Here is Mushu’s story: 

  Mushu was originally rescued from a hell hole government pound in Guangzhou, China in July 2019. Dogs in these shelters have a bleak destiny and often end up dead from disease, stolen, tortured or sold and eaten. In china dogs are not viewed as they are here in the UK. It was only in 2020 that dogs were taken off the livestock list. When rescued by the amazing charity Slaughter House Survivors in Harbin, China, Mushu was dreadfully skinny, covered in sores, was hairless from scabies mange and was generally in a sorry state both physically and mentally. The rescuers were unable to touch her to begin with due to her extreme fear. The volunteers treated Mushu in a vet clinic for 3 months until she was well enough to come to their shelter called the ‘Safehouse’. Her fur grew back, she put on weight and she grew in confidence. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.

In May 2020 the UK charity Underdog International launched a huge campaign called ‘The freedom flight 50’ with the aim to fundraise and rescue 50 meat trade dogs from the safehouse and get them to forever homes in the UK. Mushu's now owners saw her on the website, fell in love with her from just one photo on the website and applied to adopt her. The adoption process was long and in-depth, they had interviews and home checks and were so happy when they found out they had passed and were allowed to adopt! Mushu's owners fundraised to help cover the extreme costs of rescuing these dogs and waited 5 long months for Mushu to travel. Due to covid, flights were cancelled and restrictions made it very hard and also 4x the cost of what it would usually be. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.

On 10th October 2020 Mushu finally arrived in the UK. She had been on a 12 hour flight from China to France and then driven by Underdog International across France, through the Eurotunnel and finally to in her new home. Mushu spent a few months learning what home comforts are and seeing her comfy and safe made it all worth it. She is such a grateful dog and is always smiling, although she bears a few physical scars of her past. She is living the life she was always meant to live, spoilt her rotten and aim to make up for all the years of neglect she suffered. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.

Embracing Freedom
Fast forward to 2022, Mushu has settled in beautifully. She’s an absolute joy to have around!! Mushu's mum is a dog walker and comes to work with her everyday. She is amazing with the other dogs and so well behaved. She has also got a job with a dog trainer where she is used as a stooge dog to help train reactive dogs, perfect due to her sweet nature. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.

The Bedfordshire Woods provided the perfect backdrop for this extraordinary photo shoot, allowing Mushu to bask in the beauty of nature while enjoying her new found freedom. The freedom to run, explore, and simply be herself, a far cry from the existence she once endured. Every playful chase, and every moment of uninhibited happiness was a celebration of life and a testament to the human capacity for compassion. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.

A Special Bond

Throughout the photo shoot, it was evident that Mushu's love for his humans knew no bounds. It was clear that the bond between them was incredibly special. Despite the past hardships, she had found a loving home where she was cherished and she showers her humans with unconditional affection. Their eyes would light up with joy whenever they interacted with him, reflecting the beautiful connection they shared. ampthill, bedfordshire, berkhamsted, buckinghamshire, Buckinghamshire pet photography, dog friendly, dog photo shoot, dog photograhy, dog photography bedfordshire, dog photography essex, dog photography London, hertfordshire.
