Squishy Face Crew Book Helps Rescue Dogs

Owners of brachycephalic dogs with wrinkly, squishy faces young and old, big and small, rescues, mixed breeds and purebreds, locals and out-of-towners, are invited to apply to see their pooches featured in this photography book.

Following on from the success of 2016’s fundraiser project – Tails of Sydney, which has raised over $8,000 to date – applications are now open for the #SquishyFaceCrew book, which will raise funds for two charities who rescue squishy faced dogs.

This book will raise much needed funds for these two dog rescue charities, Mini’s Bulldog Rescue and Pug Patrol Rescue. As the popularity of these types of dogs grows the groups that rescue them need more financial support. 

“Bulldogs are such a special breed” says Jay of Mini’s Bulldog Rescue, “to most people’s surprise, there is an increasing number of bulldogs in need of rescue and rehoming. Mini’s Bulldog Rescue Club relies on community donations and the support of volunteers. The precious funds raised from this book will go directly towards the vet care and behavioural support of the most desperate bulldogs in need of rescue, which we couldn’t otherwise help.” 

Ruby from Pug Patrol Rescue Australia says they’re “on a mission to rescue Pugs and other ‘squishy faced’ breeds from abuse, neglect and exploitative breeding - the money raised by this project will not only enable us to rescue more dogs, but will also help us provide the extensive veterinary care and rehabilitation that our rescues need before they find their fur-ever home.” 

If your application is successful, the participation fee is $100 per dog. Please apply directly at

Ruth’s long history of helping dogs in need. In 2008, Ruth and her husband adoped three rescue dogs in the space of six months! She found herself wanting to help more dogs like hers to get adopted and that is how her pet photography journey began...

Photographing dogs in need has always been a priority that she devotes a large portion of her time to. Hundreds of dog and cat owners cite the picture she took of their pet as the reason they wanted to meet, and subsequently adopt, their furry best friend. 

Ruth currently shares her home with her husband, four rescue dogs and the occasional foster puppy (or four!). Ruth also has two other fundraising projects in the pipeline – a 2018 Rescued Blockheads calendar and a 2018 Adorable Puppies diary

Applications are currently open and spaces are very limited. Full details can be found at under the “fundraiser projects” tab.
