Hey there! We are @Dogs_of_Vilnius – a project by Gabija Kavaliauskaite and Karolis Jonusas – a couple running street photography blog of dogs. Every day we explore streets of Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania, with an aim to bring you a one-to-one with the cutest and the fluffiest doggos we meet. As a country obsessed with canines, Lithuania has 1 dog for 3.9 humans ratio which translates to approximately 730 000 doggos in a small Baltic nation of just 3 million.

We began this project as a way of stepping further from our usual approach when encountering some passerby's dog, normally just asking to pet it and then bid our farewell. However, now we don`t settle until there are at least a few dozen potential pictures...Rather often it takes more than just a treat to attract the attention of a doggo: some are more interested in toys, some require commands from their owner (unless it`s a Husky or a Labrador, both breeds appearing to be designed for photoshoots).

Having recently visited a major animal shelter “Lese” we plan on bringing the spotlight social media provides us with to other less fortunate four-legged friends and their temporary (often – permanent) homes. Join our quest to spread at least some of that unconditional love dogs offer by finding us both on Instagram and on Facebook as @Dogs_of_Vilnius.

For the sake of truth, First of all, Lithuania does not have the population of 3 million inhabitants and most of those mentioned (730 000) dogs, sadly, but left abandoned on the streets and bushes as no longer needed - animals shelters are full of abandoned animals. That's the reality.
