LETS HELP OOMPAH!  Meet Oompah.  Mesmerising.  Beautiful.  Survivor.  She is currently at the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA waiting for someone to call her their own. She is about a year old, possibly sharpei x and came to the home via the pound. Despite her terrible mange, she is a beautiful little girl. In the studio she was happy and affectionate and a real joy to meet and photograph. It always hurts my heart to see a dog who has been treated so badly, greet a stranger (me) with a tail wag and lick on the hand. Dogs are so trusting and forgiving … we owe some of them so much more than they get. Oompah is on medication to treat her condition which of course costs the DRH money. They can’t provide valuable medical care for dogs like Oompah without public support. If you would like to contribute to Oompah’s medical costs, you can make a donation at Or if you, or someone you know, may be able to provide Oompah with a safe and loving home, where she can finally learn what it’s like to belong to a family, please contact the DRH.


 Lets HELP OOMPAH and send her pic VIRAL!
