Picasso had only been in foster care less than two weeks when he came for his photo session and his foster home didn’t have much info to share on him at this point.
At the session, Picasso just wanted direction - he loved the attention of the camera, but he wasn’t keen on having to stand next to the wall (so sorry buddy!). While he was there, we got some extra photos to help him get adopted and… he did! Picasso was ADOPTED (!!) to a family whose sleddie passed away recently and obviously left a sleddie-sized whole in their hearts.
**UPDATE - I reached out to Picasso's new family April 16.18 and they sent me an update!:**
