    “A Girl’s Best Friend” by Maria Davison Ramos from Portugal, the overall winner and the ‘Man's Best Friend’ category's 1st place winner. The image of a cross breed and rescue dog, Yzma at her owner’s feet perfectly shows that special bond between people and dogs.
    “For me, capturing real and candid moments is what photography is all about. This is one of those moments. My friend had just adopted Yzma and while we were chatting in the kitchen I was taking some photographs. The location and the light were far from perfect, but I ended taking one of the photos I’m most proud of,” Maria wrote about her work.

    The Kennel Club, UK's largest organization dedicated to the welfare of dogs, announced on June 19 the winners of its annual canine photography competition, Winners for Dog Photographer of the Year 2016. Take a look at the most meaningful photos of pooches in Sputnik’s gallery.
