Taking a paws for the cause

The puparazzi was out in full force in Queenstown on Sunday.

Dog Rescue Dunedin hosted a "Paws & Pose" fundraiser at the resort’s dog-friendly craft beer bar Beech Tree to raise money for the care of abandoned and condemned dogs it saves across the lower South Island.

Ms Holzner took portraits of pups for donations during the afternoon, proceeds from which went to the charity, while Remarkable Dog Training’s Flip Collins provided training tips to foster carers and Queenstown Dog Bakery handed out treats for the pooches.

On hand was professional photographer Laura Holzner, pictured taking a photo of 6-month-old staffy-American bulldog Gent.
