Husky dog wanted for "Red Riding Hood" photoshoot

Hi to all members and animal lovers!

I was advised by a friend to write here, in order to find an owner willing to lend us his/her beloved pet for a couple of hours for a photo-shoot, with "Red Riding Hood" as a theme.

The Project will take place in Üetliberg, Zürich, most probably next week on the 27th of July. Although it is not necessary for us to have a Husky dog-pretending-to-be-the-bad-wolf, it would add more reality and artistic features to the whole concept.

It is supposed to be a friendly photo-shoot, between me and some friends who are doing this as a hobby and no photos are going to be used in printed or other media to make money out of it. Everybody has their morning jobs and every now and then, we gather together to think of the next cool thing to make. That means that I'm not sure we can offer money to the owner, but I don't think it won't be a problem for him/her to have a copy of the finished photos afterwards, with the consent of the photographer. This way, you'll keep the photos for the modeling book of your pet and...who knows! Maybe a whole new career might start for them!

So please, let us know if you are willing to help us in this fairy tale Project and we will be glad to have you and your furry friend on the set with us.
Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

For what it's worth, I know the OP personally and I can vouch for her being 100% genuine, reliable and also great person... so I am sure your dog will be in safe hands with no time wasted.

Thank you dear.
If we don't find any real dogs, we can dress you up as a wolf if you would like to help out with the project.. :P

Unfortunately, my dog absolutely doesn't look like a wolf, more like a fox!

Re: Husky dog wanted for "Red Riding Hood" photoshoot

Why not hire a werewolf directly. There should be plenty of them on the EF

(P.S. I thought it might sound funny)

I hope the husky (dogs )owners will come with help. My friends can only offer two labs.

Re: Husky dog wanted for "Red Riding Hood" photoshoot

I think it would be reasonable to assume that the "animal lovers" who visit the Pet Corner forum of EF, have too much respect for their pets for them to be used as "models" in an undefined photo shoot.

Dear Merrylegs
I'd be more than happy to answer any questions that a reluctant owner might have. In general, it will only be a photo-shoot focused more on the model playing the Red Riding Hood and the high fashion red dress that she will be wearing. The dog will not be in any stress or mishandled for any reason. He will be part of the scenery among the trees and may be hugged or petted by the model in some shots, but I don't think that these things are disrespectful for an animal...
A small example would be this:
husky-dog-wanted-red-riding-hood-photoshoot-1063055_10151701418348711_210302722_n.jpg
Does anybody find this too extreme?

Are you for real? I mean, really?

EDIT - And you even groaned her for it. Sorry but that's just more than a little idiotic.

Not extreme except for riding hood with a human skull in her basket , but the dogs don't really look like wolves... so for me I don't make the connection. But maybe it's just me. Yeah, probably.
