Every dog has their day

Photographer Alex Cearns loves taking pictures of animals, and these pictures all have a story. Each of these dogs have a disability, but nothing is holding them back.
Pip: This is the picture that helped puppy-dog Pip find a home. When it was taken, Pip had lost most of her fur. In spite of this, she was a natural in front of the camera and loved being in the spotlight. The snap went viral and Pip was soon adopted into a loving family.

Keisha and Reuben: The two pooches are the best of friends. Keisha and Reuben both lost the use of their back legs, but their owners say they've adapted well to using their wheelchairs. Keisha is very loving and loyal, and her pal Reuben loves an adventure.

Lady Bug: In 2011, Lady Bug had lost both her eyes to a condition called glaucoma. However, being blind has done nothing to slow her down!

Raul: This cheeky guy loves the attention he gets on his daily walks. He lost the use of his back legs in 2016 so now uses a wheelchair. His family adore him and say he makes them laugh all the time.

Vegemite: At three years old, Vegemite was attacked by another dog and was badly injured. Sadly he lost his eye, but has adapted well. Vegemite loves watching TV, especially when there are animals on.

Dott: Jack Russell Dott loves nothing more than chasing anything that moves. She's also into running, paddle boarding, eating bacon and going on adventures. When she lost her eye in 2016 her owner worried how she might cope, but other than occasionally bumping into things, she's a happy dog!

Oompah: When she was rescued, Oompah was underweight, had lots infections and suffered with anxiety, particularly when she was left alone. After this snap was published, hundreds of people donated money for her treatment. Her owner, Clare, says that she is a strong spirit with a never-ending well of love.

Jessie: Since losing movement in her back legs, this pup's learnt to get around really fast in her wheelchair. So fast that her owners have had to replace her wheels more than once because she keeps wearing them out!
