Inky

Inky the Chihuahua was rescued from a hoarder, but despite growing up in an abusive home, he’s a good-natured and loving canine companion that works as a therapy dog.

 

Davidson says Inky and the rest of her subjects have a lot to teach us.

 

"I really hope what people take away from these stories is information to make decisions for their own pets, an appreciation for the resilience of all animals, and ultimately a sense of normalcy from the photos and stories. Technology continues to advance at a rapid rate, and our relationship and compassion toward animals continues to evolve," she says.
